Psyonix confirms Rocket League on PS5 & Xbox Series X/S with improvements coming

Rocket League will take advantage of next-gen hardware when it launches on PS5 and Series X.


Psyonix’s Rocket League is one of the most popular multiplayer games in the world, so it’s no shocker that the game will be receiving a proper release on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. When Rocket League arrives on next-gen, it will bring a number of new upgrades to the wildly popular vehicular soccer game. Psyonix has detailed all of the enhancements Rocket League will benefit from with its next-gen optimized version.
