BattlEye anti-cheat system devs confirm support for Proton

Even before the launch of the Steam Deck, good news is already emerging in the Linux world. It was last Thursday (23) that Epic Games announced that the Easy Anti-Cheat anti-cheat system now has official support for Wine and Steam Play/Proton. Today (24) it was the turn of the BattlEye developers to confirm support for Proton.

The news was announced via a tweet posted by the official BattlEye Twitter profile. In their publication, the developers recalled that the anti-cheat system already provided native Linux support. However, now software support within Proton will also be officially supported.

Among the games currently using BattlEye are: Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), Destiny 2, DayZ, The Crew 2 and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint.

So once again, developers will have a bit of work to do as it won't be automatic, as with Easy Anti-Cheat, which needs to have Wine/Proton support turned on manually, with Epic Games promising to be it only takes a few clicks.

So it remains for us to see which developers will actually enable Proton support in BattlEye. Considering that the Steam Deck already seems to have done pretty well in reserves, many players will be disappointed if some games are blocked when Valve's device ships with the SteamOS 3 operating system, which is based on Arch Linux.
