    Actually they aren't, due to the improvements to Linux gaming like more games being ported and things like Proton to allow windows games to work on linux people are moving over to linux more, look at Majaro Linux. Macs are still relevant for those who want to have a professional workstation (well if they don't care about money i guess) and a gaming system.

    Game was sold as working on Linux/Mac os, should either continue to fully work or Psyonix should offer refunds to those that want it.

    Not suprised though, Psyonix have been shit for years. Nice community driven Psyonix is long gone.

    The 6 people still trying to game on Linux and Mac must be devastated.

    Too many wasted resources for the (tiny) amount of people using those versions. Pretty simple optimization to just cuz it off. Makes sense.

    They should allow anybody to refund the game who was getting it for Linux and MacOS.
    Options are nice, and i dislike the direction windows is currently going in, so these are pretty ugly news.

    People game on Mac OS? :lol:

    Sorry, but Mac OS is not a true gaming OS, Linux is better suited, as is Windows 10

    And this is why you shouldn't pay for software, specially if it is in any for related to a "cloud".

    cutting support so they can work with ""new technologies"" what do they mean coding a port of the same 5 year old game for new consoles with the same cpu architecture as every computer running mac and 64 bit linux out there

    Something that discriminates against macOS users AND makes Epic Games look like a bunch of jerks... Must be my lucky day.

    No, but seriously, this is awful and I'll probably even demand a refund for my Switch version, because this is bs by Epic games and if they can say they are cutting the chord for Linux and macOS support I can tell them I don't want a game I cannot play with my fellow Linux and macOS brethren.

    Might as well cut the PS4 and Switch versions too, because BSD and HorizonOS aren't "real operating systems"

    Exactly, gotta move those coders away from "frivolous" stuff like maintaining compatibility to "important" stuff like making more Fortnite micro-transactions.

    This just reminds me of why I can't stand Epic as a company.

    C'mon ppl. The Desktop Wars were fought a long time ago and MSFT won easily. There's no reason for a smaller dev to waste what little resources they have making games for people who knowingly use the losing platform(s). This has been true since the early 90s, so there's no need to act surprised nearly 30 years on. And no, 2021 is not going to be the Year of Linux on the Desktop any more than 1997 was.

    This is annoying me greatly...
    I moved to Arch linux last september and I havent looked back since, the only games I ever want to play on my Linux machine is Overwatch (runs flawlessly thanks to Wine) and Rocket League (Native). I barely get the time to play anymore, and now you're restricting my options, fuck you.

    Also can everyone stop hating on Linux and MacOS, people have justified reasons to use them, I bloody hate people shitting on Linux especially, just because it's not what everyone uses. Think about it for a minute why people are even using Linux if Windows is so great...

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Honestly I bet the people on this thread hating linux hasnt even used Linux, and if they have, it was through a shitty and buggy VM instance (probably even Ubuntu).
