    yep Google is all about money, if they don't see a dime from something they won't stick around. And Vulkan isn't something that is going to improve their bottom line in the short term.

    I will add that Vulkan could be a turnover on the OpenGL AMD situation, as OpenGL was plagued with old code who have traditionally never worked ( on a natural way ) on AMD architecture. A fresh new additional version ( Vulkan ) is a good news for all AMD Opengl guys.

    I say could... not that it will be the case.

    i dont know... future will tell.. sadly, the OpenGL history ( at least for gaming ) dont really speak for it. ( outside mobile ofc )...

    But if there's one reason, is just for dont let MS seat on their b.... and provide at least a bit of competition.
