Psyonix is ‘Looking Into’ Bringing Rocket League to Other Platforms
Rocket League is currently only available on Playstation 4 and PC, but the developer Psyonix is looking to bring the game on more platforms.
The developer was recently asked whether the game will ever release on Xbox One or not. In response, the developer did not give any clear answer, but acknowledged the fact that many fans are asking them of an Xbox One version:
@TheWalkingNews We've seen a lot of requests for it, that's for sure.

GameZone recently interviewed Vice President of Marketing and Communications of Psyonix, Jeremy Dunham, who stated that the studio is definitely looking to bring the game to other platforms:
Now that the game is doing as well as its doing and people really want to see, we’ve focused on this. We’re now in a position that we can expand our team. We are absolutely, 100 percent going to other platforms. What those platforms are and when we’ll come to them, I don’t know yet.
Dunham also told as to why Rocket League is only available on PC and Playstation 4 saying:
The number one reason we’re only on PlayStation and PC is because the team is small. For the majority of the development, there were only 8 to 12 people working on Rocket League, and we’ve only very recently — in the last few weeks — added a couple of people to that count.
The reason that we had to focus is because with that many people, and we’re perfectionists on top of that, we wanted to make sure the game ran well and that it had as many positive elements as possible, and that we weren’t just trying to port it to as many platforms as we possibly could just to try to maximize our profit
Finally speaking of the platforms on which we can expect Rocket League, Dunham did not name any specific platforms by saying:
Nothing is off the table! If the game can work on the platform and we can responsibly get that game working on a platform, we will never say never to any of the platforms that are current-gen. Anything is possible.
