Sony finally enables full cross-platform play for Rocket League


Sony has allowed Rocket League players on the PlayStation 4 to play against the users of other consoles.

Developer Psyonix and Sony have officially added Rocket League to the PlayStation 4’s Cross-Play beta programme, bringing the PlayStation 4 in line with the Xbox One, Switch and PC. The move marks another softening in Sony’s previously hardcore opposition to console cross-play. Last year, as we reported, Sony became embroiled in a controversy when it blocked Fortnite cross-play between the PlayStation 4 and other platforms, only to eventually relent.

In a post on the company’s website, /Psyonix’s vice president, publishing, Jeremy Dunham, said: “we are thrilled to announce that starting RIGHT NOW, Rocket League has entered the PlayStation Cross-Play Beta program! Players on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Steam can now randomly matchmake with or against each other in all Online match types (i.e. Casual, Competitive, and Extra Modes).”

The post went on to detail how to ensure Cross-Play is enabled on the PlayStation 4, and Dunham added: “Today’s announcement is an important one for us here at Psyonix, because we know how much our community has wanted FULL cross-platform support for quite some time. It’s because of YOU, our fans, and our generous partners on all systems and services that have made this possible in the first place.”
