Psyonix has revealed that the Xbox One and PS4 cross-network play feature for Rocket League is ready, but they cannot release it until Sony gives them permission.
Speaking to IGN, Vice President Jeremy Dunham explained that if Sony approved the feature, it could be up within “hours”.
“Right now, we’re literally at the point where all we need is the go-ahead on the Sony side and we can, in less than a business day, turn it on and have it up and working no problem. It’d literally take a few hours to propagate throughout the whole world, so really we’re just waiting on the permission to do so.”
Rocket League currently allows players on the PS4 and Xbox One to play with/against PC users, but not between the two consoles. Whether or not Sony will ever allow it still isn’t known.
“Sony’s such a big company that I’m sure it takes a while for them to figure out what it is that the roadblocks are, what sort of issues they might run into with other titles, any number of things that I can’t even begin to speculate on.”
“It was just as much of a surprise to them as I think the rest of the world when Microsoft said that they would do it.”
