Rocket League to offer cross-platform multiplayer between Xbox One, PC, and Switch

Like Minecraft, Psyonix’s Rocket League is opening up for multi-platform play. And, also like Minecraft, the PlayStation 4 is noticeably absent from the list of supported platforms.

Rocket League already counted itself among one of the few games that allowed cross-platform play between PC and a console. Now, as Psyonix unveils the game's upcoming Switch release, those cross-platform possibilities are expanding as well.

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. The PlayStation 4 however, which already allows Rocket League matches between Steam and PS4 players, is notably absent from that list.

This isn’t the first cross-platform play announcement that Sony’s current console contender was absent from. Microsoft announced that Minecraft’s ‘Better Together’ update would open the gates for cross-platform online play. But, as with today's Rocket League announcement, the PlayStation 4 is not included in the list of supported platforms.
