According to Star Citizen developer Chris Roberts, speaking at PAX East in Boston, “Star Citizen” is heading to Linux.
When asked about AAA titles heading to Linux, Chris Roberts had this to say “I will say that the likelihood of it happening is increasing because all the major engines are porting to Linux”. His best line in my mind was just after he explained how the major game engines were porting to Linux. He had this to say about the games themselves being ported:
“Why not?” ~ Chris Roberts
“Star Citizen” will be a very welcome edition to the growing Linux gaming community and another great title for us to enjoy!
At Roberts Space Industries, we are dissatisfied. In the words of our illustrious original Chairman Roberts at the first Board of Directors meeting in 2068, “Complacency rarely leads to innovation. As scientists, engineers, and artists, it’s our job to be dissatisfied. We question, we analyze, we have that itch constantly gnawing at us that says ‘we can do better.’ I want that dissatisfaction etched into the foundation of the company so we perpetually push Humanity toward bigger and better things.”
That step towards Humanity’s future was cemented with the unveiling of the Quantum Core Engine technology in 2075. The Quantum Core allowed Humanity to explore the solar system with unprecedented speed. An achievement of this magnitude would be enough for most companies to settle, to become complacent, but RSI ignored that temptation.
Today, RSI diverts more funds toward its Research & Development division than any of its competitors, still trying to scratch that itch that says we can do better.
They stayed dissatisfied. They strove to do more.
