Depending on who you talk to, cross-platform gaming is the future of online gaming as it is a great way to extend a multiplayer game’s and to be fair, it is a pretty truthful statement.
So truthful in fact that it is a great concept and one that is being put into effect even more so. Moreover during a chat with Engadget, Psyonix’s Jeremy Dunham not only stressed the importance of cross-platform play, but also revealed desires for continuously supporting Rocket League, as opposed to making a singular game into an unnecessary series. (It did after all work out for Minecraft). Still, here’s Dunham’s direct quote:“We’re not trying to build six Rocket Leagues. We’re not looking forward to when Rocket League 2 and 3 and 4 are coming out. Rocket League is the game we’re gonna keep updating. It’s important to us to keep that going, cross-generation, across multiple platforms without sacrificing anything.”
The only problem with cross-platform play is the stance the companies behind the platforms take. Sure Nintendo and Microsoft are proving to be all for it, but for now at least, SONY is still being a stick in the mud, but this is the era for revolutionary game, so anything can happen. Much like Rocket League being announced for Switch this month, which did happen, so let’s not rule out SONY changing their stance anytime soon. We are after all getting a Mario/Rabbids game this year!
Whatever happens though, we’ll be sure to keep you posted!
