I have mixed feelings about this. While I’m kind of happy that there will be more PoE games, I’m saddened that I’m most likely not going to be part of that journey anymore. But who knows, maybe MS will make a big surprise and release the game for multiple of platforms Linux included. They are Khronos member but it is still hard to believe they would use royalty-free open standards like Vulkan or OpenGL. Hard to say how much Obsidian has power to choose the tools they use.
Microsoft is a huge company; while other side calls it “cancer”, other side can love it at the same time.
