I've got some reader questions. One asks, you've talked about PC and Mac. What about Linux?
David Braben: I'm a big fan of Linux. We want to get the PC version right. We're not being distracted yet. And we will look at other platforms once we've got this. Obviously there are a lot of other possible platforms we can support, including Linux and console. Depending on console choices, Linux may be easier or harder as well. So we want to try and do a proper, sensible roadmap than a kneejerk. It would be easy for me to say, oh yes, we'll do that. I want to do that, but I can't say we're doing that on this date. We need to plan it sensibly. And so we will.
With Raspberry Pi we chose Linux. I am aware there are a lot of big Linux communities. But we've got to be sensible about it.
Are you any closer to deciding whether you're doing a console version?
David Braben: We are, because we're getting closer to release. We've said we will make a decision, but we don't want to get sidetracked. We don't want to get distracted. Obviously it is something we're seriously internally looking at.
Have Sony and Microsoft been in touch?
David Braben: We're doing a first-party game with Microsoft. We talk about all sorts of things. And obviously we talk to Sony as well. But I'm not saying anything about it.
