DICE: Linux Needs "One Killer App or Game"

There's an interview on Polygon talking with DICE's Lars Gustavsson, who expresses the opinion that Linux only needs one "killer" game or app to "motivate" adoption of the operating system, something they are counting on someone else to do, as there are no indications they plan on dropping Windows or console support from the Battlefield series. In fact, most of the article focuses on efforts at making Battlefield 4 more accessible as he explains "everyday we need to stop ourselves from going too hardcore, we really have to hold ourselves back." He still expresses optimism for the future of Linux in this quote that reads like he considers DICE and indie, which is probably not the intent: "So, to me, I think that the possibilities are many and I think indies can build for Linux even though we don't have enormous audience."
