Rocket League Cross-Platform Parties Will Be Ready By September

Rocket League is due to support cross-platform parties, or RocketID, by September of this year, rather than the originally-planned August.

While Rocket League has supported limited cross-platform play for quite sometime, the game has never allowed players of different platforms party up. But developer Psyonix has frequently teased the inclusion of cross-platform parties, and the company announced today that the feature will finally come this September.

Per a blog post from Psyonix, the system will be called “RocketID.” While the developer planned to roll out the feature this month, it has been slightly pushed back to the month after. Of course, the update will be subject to certification from the platform holders. Those familiar with the Fortnite cross-play snafu will remember that the feature has been contemptuous, with both Fortnite and Rocket League not allowing PS4 players to play with those on the Xbox One and Switch.

But the news is big for Rocket League fans, as cross-platform play with friends was only previously available in private matches. Psyonix continues to discuss the big August update that was previously announced, and again plugged the upcoming Rocket Pass progression system that will be added a week after the August update rolls out.
