Good news Linux fans!
Unity Technologies just announced the addition of Linux desktop support for Unity 4, the latest update to the already excellent Unity3D multiplatform game engine.
Take note this new feature is still listed as a *preview.* We still need to get our hands on it to see how stable it is.
Nonetheless, this is exciting news and can only mean Rival Threads will support Linux down the line.
Thought I should address this here real quick since a lot of Linux related messages are pouring in.
This is as official as it gets... for now. :)
The wording above might be a little confusing so:
Yes, this guarantees a Linux port! However, we'll wait until Unity Technologies moves the feature out of "preview" before we can give you a specific timeframe on a Linux release.
Gotta make sure everything works. :)
