Rocket League 'definitely' headed to other platforms

 Rocket League  'definitely' headed to other platforms

Since launching on July 7 on both PC and PS4, Rocket League has been downloaded over 5 million times, and developer Psyonix is now looking to capitalize on that meteoric momentum by bringing the title to other platforms. 

Speaking to GameSpot, Psyonix's marketing VP Jeremy Dunham revealed that Rocket League is "definitely" on its way to new systems, and that an official announcement will be made "a little further down the line."

Indeed, a lack of staff meant the team simply couldn't release a polished product on all platforms, though with download numbers soaring, Psyonix are already bringing in fresh faces. 

"The number one reason we're only on PlayStation and PC is because the team is small," said Dunham.

"For the majority of the development, there were only eight to 12 people working on Rocket League, and we've only very recently--in the last few weeks--added a couple of people to that count.

"We wanted to make sure that it was very good, very polished, that everybody liked it, and the only way we could ensure that was to focus on two platforms. We're now in a position that we can expand our team, and we're absolutely, 100 percent going to other platforms."
