Psyonix “Evaluating” the Possibility of Rocket League on Nintendo Switch
With the Nintendo Switch out for a month, developer Psyonix said the studio is exploring the possibility of bringing Rocket League to the system.
Since its debut in 2015, the rocket-powered soccer game Rocket League has grown from an indie sensation to a vastly popular online multiplayer game with a dedicated community, and with the recent release of the Nintendo Switch it appears developer Psyonix is open to the possibility of bringing the game over.
Speaking with IGN, Psyonix vice president Jeremy Dunham said that the studio is currently “evaluating” the possibility of Rocket League on Nintendo Switch “just like all the other platforms,” with Dunham adding more in his statement:
“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.”
Specifically, Dunham addressed that Psyonix is “a community based company,” and given that the Nintendo Switch has only been out for just under a month, assures that there is “plenty of time to look to see how it’s doing and what our audience wants” in terms of the platform’s impact and how to bring the game over to the system.
Rocket League is available now on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Linux.
