Sadly the upcoming Deus Ex Linux port will only be using OpenGL while the macOS port is using Metal and the Windows game supports Direct3D 12. But on the bright side, Feral Interactive is planning for Vulkan Linux game ports in the first half of next year.

Feral confirmed via a Twitch stream today of Deus Ex and on Twitter, "Linux gamers! We just announced, live on Twitch, that we are looking towards Vulkan implementation in the first half of next year."

The Deus Ex release next week will be making use of OpenGL.

No word on any H1'2017 game plans where they are currently plotting to make use of Vulkan.
