[Tom's Hardware] Ubisoft: Porting Games to Google Stadia Isn't That Expensive

Source: https://www.tomshardware.com/news/go...ase,39972.html

Quote:
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said that porting its existing catalog of games to the Google Stadia PC game streaming service has not been costly, at least not yet.

Speaking during an investor Q&A, Guillemot said that “The extra cost to port, to make sure the games work well on Stadia is not that high. Now, we are not speaking about 2.0 types of games that will need more work, and this we will see more in the future action," as reported by Gamasutra.

It's the kind that comes after 1.0 type games and before 3.0 type games.

Stadia is Linux, yet they don't release any games for Linux even though "The extra cost to port, to make sure the games work well on Stadia(Linux) is not that high."

That's exactly how I feel. Bungie pisses me off since they don't support wine and permanently ban when users use it. Yet they are going to be releasing a ported Stadia game at launch.

Extra cost to port isnt high because its subsidized.

Sure, and Android is Linux so why don't we have ports for Android too!

Android isn't an x86 distro. But yes, Ubisoft does make Android games.

That's what I was wondering, but either way, there is no reason for them to not release a linux version other than ideology. I think the reason for not supporting Linux from most big publishers isn't really about cost. There has to be some "back scratching" with Microsoft or something going on. Prior to id being bought by Zenimax, they released Linux versions of everything. Afterwards, nothing. None of the Linux versions of their games are available on steam. Quake Live worked in Linux prior to their purchase. The linux version was removed after, and it's just a game that's played in a browser with a plugin.
