That's a really funny statement in the era of 40+ GB Day1 patches for games, no matter the platform the game is released on. PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox1.
Themken: There are alternatives like Vulkan, even if you do not do a Linux version. I understand a Linux version must look feasible on paper in some way, like if you expect a loss of five thousand, you must deem the goodwill value of that equal or greater than that.
Magmarock: Yes but only the developed know whether or not Vulkan should be used. You might prefer Vulkan because it’s not exclusive but there might be other reasons to use it. Maybe it doesn’t play nice with the engine or doesn’t get the framerates they want. The games must look it's best and play it's best on lauch to optain the heighest chance of success.
