Rocket League Cross Play On Switch, Developers Frustrated At PlayStation

Rocket League Cross Play On Switch, Developers Frustrated At PlayStation

Now, as Psyonix unveils the game's upcoming Switch release, those cross-platform possibilities are expanding as well.

Cross-play games between platformers are becoming more prominent than ever.

"Online Multiplayer supports up to eight players, and Cross-Network play will be supported as well, allowing Switch players to hit the field with players on Steam and Xbox One". The reason, according to them, is because they "have a responsibility to the children" playing online on their systems (which makes no sense whatsoever, as Psyonix, the developers of Rocket League, pointed out earlier today).

"In terms of pure greenlighting for when this project started, three months ago", says Psyonix Vice-President Jeffrey Dunham says to US Gamer, "If you wanna talk about when we first started investigating, messing with dev kits, late previous year was about when we first started looking at it".

Nintendo's annual E3 Direct livestream had its share of surprises and plenty for Switch owners to look forward to. All we have to do is check that box and it would be up and running in less than an hour all over the world. PlayStation 4 is not a part of the equation due to Sony's continued staunch stance on cross-platform play, and it doesn't look like that will be changing any time soon.

"It's literally something we could do with a push of a button, metaphorically", added Dunham. A year later, the Nintendo Switch version of Rocket League will support cross-play, but Sony still isn't letting it happen. "In reality it's a web page with a checkbox on it". Spencer said that for us, Xbox One isn't the only platform that's incredibly Important.

Dunham reiterated that if this is something that the community is clamouring for, they need to be vocal about it.

"I don't see why they should say no to Minecraft", said Dunham.

"Our dream is that true cross-network play - we want it on all the platforms", said Dunham. "I have this analogy, and I know I use this analogy a lot, but it's like if I have an iPhone and my brother has a (Samsung) Galaxy". "All we need is a green light from Sony".
