SuperTuxKart on PS4

Hi! Are there any plans about porting SuperTuxKart to PS4 in the future? There are several free-to-play games on the PS4 store, it would be awesome to have SuperTuxKart too! :D It will reach a larger audience too! :)

There is no such plan, we don't really have the manpower to think about this.

If we were to port to the PS4, we'd have to re-write large portions of the rendering engine to use whatever API Sony uses. Supposedly the PS5 and next-gen Xbox will both get Vulkan, then a layer like Zink could be used for translating OpenGL->Vulkan, but obviously those consoles will have to be released first, then we'd need the manpower to do the port. iOS is a bigger priority at this point.

To my knowledge Sony has never allowed an open source project on their platform. I'm not sure what their rules are to get a dev kit but it may be something the developers don't agree to or require a certain amount of funding. Some could also consider it a GPL violation.
