According to a tweet from the official support account of Rocket League, crossplay party support will arrive in 2018, meaning that the game’s 40-million-plus players will finally be able to invite their friends to play on the same team regardless of platform.
Depending on the platform, players have been able to dribble, doink, and wave dash around the field with players from other platforms but they have not been able to party up, trade, or guarantee that they will be on the same team.
The tweet was in response to Twitter user Floshke who tweeted asking when he would be able to play ranked with players on PS4. They responded with this:
Hey there! We’re actively working on cross-platform party support for a 2018 release. 🙂

The ability to party-up with friends across platforms has been teased and referenced by Psyonix in several interviews, though this is the first time we’re getting any mention of a release window. Soon friends will be able to play together whether they’re playing from the office on Switch, or at home on their gaming PC or console.
Rocket League is currently available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch. If you’re a fan of the game’s distinctly electronic music then you can read about how Psyonix is crowdsourcing some new music here.
