Quake Champions Early Access and Linux?

quake champions early access and linux windows games on steam

id Software’s incredible multiplayer fragfest, Quake Champions enters Early Access. Since the games only supporting Windows on Steam, the Linux demand is high. Hence the Steam Discussions requesting Linux support. Since the games brings a host of new content, including new map and features. Along with a special new Champion, the mighty DOOM Slayer from DOOM. While Doom 2016 is playable via Wine with Vulkan support. A similar demand is expected for the current Early Access release.

So players who want to jump in and frag fest should know a couple of things. Doom 2016 development uses id Tech 6 while Quake Champions uses a hybrid engine. Which seems to use part of id Tech 6 but not the full engine as Doom 2016 does. Not that I can get into any serious detail. Yet this means that a native Linux port could be more of a task. Meaning id Software would have their hands full porting the game. Since there are no developer comments at the time of writing.
