Rocket League coming to Nintendo Switch, cross play PC

Rocket League

Rocket League is set to be released on the Switch this Holiday season. I am glad more and more people are calling Sony out on this cross platform play thing- I want to see them back off from this frankly regressive stance, and enable the kind of cross platform play that is sure to be the wave of the future.

Nintendo, a company perennially behind when it comes to consumer expectations for online functionality, revealed at the Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show that Psyonix's vehicle soccer hit Rocket League will enable crossplay between Switch, Xbox One, and PC.

So, in case you missed it last week, Sony provided a pretty lame excuse when it comes to not supporting cross-platform play for Rocket League on PlayStation 4.

Dunham said true cross-network play is very important because you can have faster matchmaking and you get better quality opponents.

Nintendo is, of course, aware of this fact, which is why it was a no-brainer decision for the company to acquire a port of the game for their recently released gaming console. "Y'know, we buy the phones for their unique designs or software or whatever, but not having cross-network is like saying, 'Hey, you can't make calls to your brother because he has a different phone than you'". 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. The company is disadvantaging its own users, at this point, because the number of players they can compete with is limited. "In reality it's a web page with a checkbox on it".

Later this year, Rocket League will allow for cross-platform play between the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Windows 10, and Steam versions of the game. Cross-platform play, including the PlayStation 4, could happen today if Sony told them they could do it. "All we need is a green light from Sony".

"Technically it's possible", Dunham said.

Since there are no technical limitations for cross-network play, Dunham says, "Right now it's just a political barrier we need to help figure out how to crack".
