Valve has been pushing hard to get more gamers on Linux. Their latest effort culminated in Proton, a compatibility tool using WINE to bring more games to Linux distributions through the Steam Play program.
Linux owners looking to dig into SoulCalibur VI have received a nasty surprise this week. According to reports on the Steam forums, players are getting blocked from online services after booting the game on Linux. The ban appears to be account based, as it is extending to those who reinstall the game on Windows. It is unknown at this time if the issue is related to Bandai Namco or the Denuvo anti-cheat system used by SoulCalibur VI.
