One of the founders of the CD Projekt RED, spoke about why the developer of The Witcher series and Cyberpunk 2077 has not yet shown any support towards Linux.
Why Iwinski thinks so? Well, much of that can be attributed to the number of different versions of Linux and how the developer wants to support all of them instead of just one.
He said in the podcast:
First of all, we have a lot of respect for Steam and we think they are very, very good business guys and good gamer friendly guys and that’s really, really important. We like what they are doing and with the Steam Box, if they will be able to deliver a cool console, definitely, we are interested in having a game there.
You know, one of the reasons we have not released The Witcher on Linux is that we most probably have to address five different versions of Linux and this is always terrible to support the quality of the games afterwards. The patches, the updates, and everything.
If Steam will deliver a constant Linux environment, call it SteamOS or anything like that, we would love to have our games there because, you know, the more people play our games, the better for us.
The Witcher developer is looking at SteamOS for an answer to this riddle as CD Projeckt expects it to become an operating system of choice.
What do you think of the comments and reasons from the CD Projeckt RED? Will SteamOS bring the desired changes? Will there be a day when Witcher series finally have Linux support? Let us know in your comments!
