Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation [Steam] recently gained Vulkan support in the 2.4 update along with tons of other new stuff. The interesting thing is that Linux is mentioned once again.

In this Steam post talking about Vulkan, see this bit:

The Vulkan version also paves the way for a future Linux version. Getting Vulkan is a big step in making Ashes of the Singularity available on more platforms.

Considering that was posted only ~2 hours ago, it’s a damn good sign that it’s being considered.

I’m really looking forward to it, as it’s exactly the type of strategy game I love and it would be pretty incredible to have such a title native on Linux.

Considering their roadmap and the fact that Vulkan support in Ashes is still a work in progress, it may be quite some time until they’re even ready to publicly say a Linux version is actually coming.
