Hey what do you think of RTX (Real time ray tracing) in Subnautica? I think if it could work, it would look amazing. I mean, just think of all the reflective surfaces!

    First, majority of cards and consoles do not support RTX with even remotely acceptable framerate. Those that do suffer from impressive performance drop on RTX-enabled games.
    Second, lightning with RTX and without RTX need different approach to design, increasing load of design team.

    Consequently, it's a lot of work for little gain.

    We wont be doing RTX in Subnautica or Below Zero. It would require a re-work of all of the lighting in both games.

    If NS2 fails, follow my Nuke From Orbit Guide.
