Rocket League Cross-Platform Party System Delayed to 2019

Kicked off to 2019.

Psyonix, the developers behind the hit car/sports game Rocket League, announced that its planned RocketID cross-platform party system has been delayed until 2019.

Rocket League already supports cross-platform play between PC, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch as Psyonix was a prominent early-adopter of the cross-platform system. However, players on different platforms can't party up easily. RocketID is meant to fix the problem and while it was supposed to be out by the end of the year Psyonix announced it has been pushed into 2019.

"While our goal was to release RocketID before the end of 2018, we've made the difficult decision to push its release into early 2019," Psyonix writes. However there's a bright spot in light of recent news. "[W]ith Sny's recent announcements regarding full cross-platform functionality, we cn now make additional changes to prepare RocketID for ALL platforms should we receive permission to do so!"

While Psyonix says the delay isn't because of Sony's recent decision to allow cross-platform on the PS4, the extra time means that this can be pursued for RocketID if they're given the okay.

Rocket League is also receiving an Xbox One X enhancements in the next update so expect the game to look really good on the powerful Xbox console.
