Rocket League Could Be Coming To Xbox One

Get ready to tackle the League with your One. 


Everyone's favorite wacky soccer-and-cars title Rocket League could be making its way to an Xbox One near you very soon, if a listing on a Taiwanese video game rating board can be believed.

The listing was spotted by eagle-eyed Twitter user Lifelower and gaming site Gematsu, giving us another reason to believe Rocket League's home on PlayStation could be going away in the future.

Given recent statements by marketing VP Jeremy Dunham, who all but confirmed the fact that Rocket League would be making its way to additional platforms, it seems like a no-brainer that it'd be coming to Xbox One in the future.

Right now, Rocket League can be purchased on either PC or PlayStation 4, and it originally debuted as a free PlayStation Plus title. The exclusivity could be coming to an end, but one thing's for sure: It's still going to be a blast, no matter where it ends up.

      Can they cross platform this between all 3? That'd be sweet to add in the xbox players too

        I'm sure they *could* if they wanted to but MS and Sony will most definitely not allow it.

          From what I've seen it doesn't seem to me like they could argue it. The rocket league infrastructure (I'm fairly sure of this) is looking like its Amazon backend. Provided their only sending very basic data into an AWS infrastructure on movement positioning/etc... It should be extremely easy to continue to provide services across all 3 platforms without contravening any technical structure. Likely the issue with be legal-based if anything.... However Xbone would be stupid to lockout what has clearly become a winning game that could be getting them cash.

            I think it would probably be a small hill technically but like you mention, a legal mountain to climb. This has come up time and time again over the years with different games. It always seems to come back to them not wanting to mix and match info from the different services.

            I mean I think if anyone would be for this is would probably be EA for Madden and FIFA and they havent even been able to get it done.

              Totally understand, but I think with the AWS backend that Rocket League has (somewhat unique to them), they can likely get away with less of the services intermingling data.
