    It will probably never get a Linux port, but you never know. I can't even find what engine they are using...

    That's good, but when studios say that they plan to release a Linux version of their game I chose to remain sceptical. There's been a lot of studios who have said that they plan a Linux release, but never actually got around to it.

    Why that is, I don't know. But I suspect that it could have something to do with the libraries they chose to use for their games.

    Yeah, I don't know if they initially plan to do the release and then run out of time or money because they always seem to do the Linux port last?
    I don't know if they just want extra hype to gain more players?
    Maybe they have full intentions of doing it but have only a single developer to do the port?
    There are so many Windows developers that know nothing about Linux...
    You would think developers who do Mac ports would have some Linux knowledge due to the common unixed based operating systems...
    I have a feeling its really about money and time. Linux gaming is new and small, so companies can't fork out the money when they can't guarantee profits.

    Yeah. I browsed through the Subnautica folder trying to get it to run in wine and saw a folder called "mono". If that is THE mono it means that they know what they are doing.

    I don't understand why developers use librararies that more or less locks them to one platform and makes porting harder. There are plenty of good cross platform libraries out there.

    I bet its because that is the development process they are used to. Changing their work-flow can really slow down production. But its well worth doing multi-platform development in the long run.
