Hytale should optimize crossfire support for GPUS

Crossfire means using 2 gpus instead of one. some cheaper gpus would be a bang for the buck in an ever increasing prices of graphics card. One expensive gpu for $350 would lose to two gpus for $240, $120 each. All hytale needs to do is to is support it with software.
Here's a link on how insane the fps would be if we use 2 gpus instead of one.

With the emergence of low level graphics APIs such as DirectX 12 and Vulkan, game developers are able to implement SLI support natively within the game itself instead of relying upon a SLI driver profile. The expertise of the game developer within their own code allows them to achieve the best possible performance from multiple GPUs. As a result, NVIDIA will no longer be adding new SLI driver profiles on RTX 20 Series and earlier GPUs starting on January 1st, 2021. Instead, we will focus efforts on supporting developers to implement SLI natively inside the games. We believe this will provide the best performance for SLI users.

Nvidia SLI and AMD Crossfire is dead, but should we mourn multi-gpu gaming?
We’d argue not. After all, the most recent GPU releases from both Nvidia and AMD are fantastic performers. Especially at the top end, a single modern graphics card can easily handle almost any game at full graphical settings at 1080p resolution – which remains the most popular resolution.

For the minority of PC gamers that have monitors with higher resolutions, such as 1440p, you still won’t need more than one GPU for an excellent experience. For 4K and beyond, some GPUs will flounder, but with a bit of tweaking on a high-end card, you’ll still get a game experience that blows consoles out of the water.
In short: why bother when they're dead...? Less than 1% of all desktop users ever have used SLI or Crossfire. They made far more sense back when games and their engines weren't ripping PCs to shreds. Modern cards will handle a game like Hytale solo just fine, especially if they can handle far more graphically daunting games like Cyberpunk 2077...

Well I would want this becuase some poor people from poorer countries would like to use crossfire gpus from older graphics card because they can't afford a new one.

You can afford two $149 cards but you can't afford one $259 dollar card that still beats the 2 combined without express SLI/CF support...

Save that money...and buy a single card. You're also inserting other people who are not speaking here to bolster your argument : not every poor person in other countries (or even countries that tax each individual item) would be as gung-ho on buying two cards to end up spending more for less.

Also factor in that the video you posted is from a year ago and, as I and the articles point out, are using games designed to support a non-supported technology that is slated to be utterly defeated when single card Direct Storage (GPUDirect Storage[NVIDIA]) is implemented by card manufacturers.
