Rocket League Xbox One / PS4 cross-network play 'figured out' by Psyonix
They have the technology. Now to see if Sony and Microsoft will play nice for this momentous occasion.
Psyonix announced Rocket League would be the first game to ever bridge the gap between online networks by soon offering cross-network play. At the time, that meant Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players could play against PC players, but it appears Sony is the only holdout in allowing console players to play against one another as Microsoft has previously stated they’re open to the idea of cross-network play. While Sony and Microsoft figure out those logistics, Psyonix VP Jeremy Dunham has confirmed they have cross-network play figured out.
In an interview with GameSpot, Dunham says the only thing left to figure out were the politics of the arrangement. "The only thing we have to do now is sort of find out where we stand politically with everyone, and then it's full steam ahead to finish the solution that we've already started.” Dunham says everything is working as it should as Psyonix has the technology all figured out.
Hopefully Psyonix can get both Sony and Microsoft to play nice to allow all Rocket League fans play against other players across different platforms. If the developer is able to get it done, then who knows what other games could support cross-network play?
