    Will R6S ever land on Proton by Valve?

    Hi anyone who came to look here,
    I was wondering if Ubisoft will ever try to make R6S playable on Valve's linux software (Proton). I honestly would like to switch my OS from Windows to one of Linux like Ubuntu or Manjaro but I still see that R6S is unplayable on Proton. Will Linux gamers will ever see Six Siege not only on youtube videos?

    Hello, Darling.016!

    We have no information to share at this time if this is something that will happen. Cool idea though, I am happy to pass this suggestion on to the Siege team for you.

    Thank you.

    Update?

    Hi, can we get an update on this topic?
    I really would appreciate if I could play this game from Linux.

    Thanks!

    I think the best solution to make linux version is playable - just make it without battleye anti-cheat, and match players who is on linux, with same players on linux

    It's sound litle-bit stupid, but this is a best solution, and that's why:

    1. You dont need to rewrite engine files (maybe), only one thing devs need to do is disable battleye on linux, and match linux players together
    2. R6 is launching on linux already, but you cant play any game because of battleye, so again you dont need to rewrite more code

    Please, give me any chance to play rainbox six siege on linux Thanks!

    I think this is kind of a terrible idea. you don't have to remove battle eye you just have to implement the Linux version for it. If I am correct they implemented Vulkan a couple of months ago so if the engine has the ability to build the game for Linux you only would have to add it to the workflow (i don't know if the engine is built in C++ but if it is it should be doable). OR! you wait for the battle eye proton implementation.

    Quick Solution :
    I don't know how battle-eye works but maybe you could turn off some properties in the config (like I said I don't know if this is something battle eye has) so people can play r6 on VM's again via PCI passthrough. I'm just assuming but that would be one of the quick fixes ( if even possible )

    I mean battle eye is allready working on native linux games bc it gets spooked by wine/sometimes proton for example unturned uses battle eye natively on linux an do have had zero problems so they just need to port it to linux and chill the anticheat a bit down just bc it uses Vulkan dosent mean I can run it on linux without proton if I can run it without proton it should work and it's not hard to port ubi just don't want to do it bc they'd rather wait for someone to pay for it (eg.steam) so I don't think it's gonna happen soon
