Rocket League Dev Psyonix Evaluating Demand For Switch Port

A Switch port of the online multiplayer fest Rocket League is currently under consideration. Speaking to IGN, Psyonix Studios’ Vice President Jeremy Dunham explained that the studio is evaluating such a port on technical limits and community interest.

“Just like all the other platforms, we are evaluating it. We’re looking to see what the technical requirements are. We’re looking to see what kind of true community demand there is. We’re looking to see how it would benefit the community as a whole. So we’re still in that evaluation phase. It’s definitely too early to say that it wouldn’t happen, but it’s also definitely too early to say that it would.

I think we’ve shown over time we’re a community based company, and so what we’re doing first is seeing what kind of impact that would have and who needs it and who wants the game and we’ll go from there. Luckily the platform’s only been out for a month, so we have plenty of time to look to see how it’s doing and what our audience wants.”

Originally launched on PlayStation 4 and PC in 2015, Rocket League is a sporty combination of soccer (or football in Europe) and rocket-propelled cars. In the time since launch, it’s also been made available on Xbox One, all with cross-platform multiplayer. It currently boasts a player community of 25 million players across its three platforms. While it never got a chance to launch on the Wii U, if the community wants it enough, a Switch port of Rocket League is plausible.
