Rocket League, one of the sleeper hits of the year on PC and PlayStation 4. One of the reasons for this was its initial release on PlayStation Plus as a free game. For Xbox One players the big question has to be when will it be coming to their console?
In an interview with Redbull Psyonix CEO and studio director Dave Hagewood hinted that we may hear more on the subject by the end of the year:
“[Laughs] I can’t say,” he replied. “We’re looking at all kinds of platforms and there may be some announcements coming up at some point. Hopefully before the end of the year, but I can’t confirm that.”
So unless anything holds up the release, we are set to at least have confirmation by the end of the year going by those words. As there is no exclusivity with the game and it has had good word-of-mouth hype around it, Xbox One players will no doubt love to have the chance to play it. It will also be interesting to see if it will also have the same multi-platform support that PlayStation 4 and PC have.
In the interview Hagewood also revealed the if the scale of the success of the game has come as a surprise:
“At the scale that it did, yes. We did try to dig up all kinds of numbers. Sony were giving us numbers: we blew them all away. We broke records daily, we had no idea that it could go as big as it did, it was absolutely unprecedented. We thought it would do well, but we didn’t think it could do quite so well.”
