Crytek Finally Moves Along With The CryENGINE Linux Port
Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Gaming on 8 May 2015 at 01:02 PM EDT. 14 Comments
For over one year we've been looking forward to Crytek bringing CryENGINE to Linux with an OpenGL renderer. That was announced back at GDC 2014 and we haven't heard much lately, but finally there's an update and the Linux support is expected soon.

The CryENGINE EULA has been updated now to mention Linux and that "with one of our next updates" will come the OpenGL/Linux support. The Linux support will be initially limited to the game launcher and the CryENGINE sandbox editor will still require Microsoft Windows. CryENGINE developers paying their monthly fees will have the Linux support access with no extra costs involved.
