Just wondering if anyone is playing this game on any platform of linux.
I'm moving back over to linux after windows drops support for 7 next january so I'm starting to look at what things I use have compatibility or not.
I don't work for EA i'm just a gamer trying to help. Respect one another and have fun.

Right now it won't work on Linux (Wine) until the developers request EAC to allow Wine support. That has been the success story people have told about playing games on Linux that use EAC. The community asked for support and the developers asked EAC to allow Wine (something they by default don't enable, has to be specifically requested) then poof, happy commnity.
There is no Mac version at all; the Mac has a far bigger market share than Linux. So why on hell should they support an even more marginal operating system, which is a nightmare to support due to its fragmentation?
That might be the case that there exists a larger number of x86 based Macs than that of Linux desktop users sure, and Linux is flawed due to the fragmented development and extremely substandard audio performance and support however in terms of raw performance the Linux users would out weigh the MAC OS side considerably as Apple use very limited chipsets with average CPU they pick a ram vendor out of a hat then call that the APPLE Ram they solder the SSD to the motherboard to prevent general user maintaining their device they deceive their customers on repairs they lie about software support they enforce their internal company policy as an arm of the law through deceptive legal tactics…
Oh and they Charge people for the Hardware accelerated branch of the SDK for METAL 2 which comes with some crazy license.
The Average Mac that contributes to the number of users you’re in reference of is a system that’s not powerful enough to handle anything above couple hundred textured triangles at best of 18fps due to overheads, Those that would buy an external GPU to run on Thunderbolt would be struck down by the additional cost of the game as Making it on MAC would cost to escape the systems lock of apple supported hardware only.
The average MAC user not on a PRO is stuck with
1.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz and 4MB L3 cache.
128GB PCIe-based SSD
8GB of 2133MHz LPDDR3
Take into account the lacking features the game would require you'd be on a slide show of a game it's a generic office supplies floor model PC with MAC OS support and an Alloy case big deal.
The average Linux user will have about 15 different sound cards a Handful of Gpus and if not 2 machines maybe up in the region of 15 plus for one person and in supporting of Linux and causing it to grow allows others even those on MACTOPS to use it and possibly use an external GPU unlike MACOS.
