Rocket League Xbox One And PC Players Can Soon Play Together

If you’re an Xbox One Rocket League player, you’ll soon be able to play with PC users, and vice versa.

In an official blog post from Microsoft’s director of ID@Xbox Chris Charla, the publisher revealed that it will soon allow developers to offer cross-network support for their games. This opens up the possibility that Xbox One games will be able to connect with people playing the same game on PC or even PS4. 

Psyonix’s Rocket League will be one of the first games to take advantage of cross-platform play for Xbox One and PC . We don't have a specific date at this time, but the feature should unlock later this Spring.

Our Take
This is great. For years gamers have dreamed of playing games with their friends no matter which platform they were on, and this is a big step in that direction. This isn't the first example of cross-play between a console and PC, but it could help make the feature a more standard addition. Whether we'll actually see cross-network play between Xbox One and PS4 depends as much on Sony as it does Microsoft, so we'll have to wait and see if anything develops on that front.
