How anyone can think it's "Good" that a game is being taken away from a platform where people purchased it, spent money in-game and more is beyond me.

When did people become so hostile to the fun of others?

This dick move will not be forgotten.
I will simply blacklist all future games coming from this company, even if they have a native Linux version.

Linux users, vote with you wallet !

I think Epic does things like this quite regularly, the only difference is, that they now screwed over existing customers of a game vs killing support for games in development (e.g. kickstarter projects that promised GNU/Linux support but never delivered when aking Epic as publisher)

@gamingonlinux And what baffles me is that 0.3% of 57 million registered players are still 171 thousand players. If everyone just paid 10€ and has never bought any DLC or in-game items that would still be over 1.71 Million €. And with the time you invest, you also increase the portability of your source code base, probably enabling switch and console ports. I would speculate that "not economically viable" is just an excuse to implement EAC.

It sounds like this guy has never actually used Linux, or maybe did 10 years ago and got frustrated and wrote it off. Maybe he tried to install Arch. :troll: Luckily his profile says he "used to make videogames."

Having a blind hatred of an OS/platform or even a narrow minded superiority complex for a single platform really limits your ability to grow as an engineer.
