Psyonix Considering Rocket League for Nintendo Switch

Rocket League might be coming to Nintendo Switch, according to Jeremy Dunham, Vice President of Psyonix, in an interview with IGN.

Don’t hold your breath for an imminent release though. Dunham and his team will evaluate community demand for the game and review the technical requirements of the platform before committing to a port for the popular multiplayer game that is already available on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

“We’re looking to see what kind of true community demand there is. We’re looking to see how it would benefit the community as a whole. So we’re still in that evaluation phase. It’s definitely too early to say that it wouldn’t happen, but it’s also definitely too early to say that it would,” Dunham said.

Nintendo still hasn’t confirmed exactly how the Switch’s online gaming service will function in the long term. Online gaming on the Switch is currently free, however Nintendo has stated that a monthly charge will be introduced later this year.

Rocket League was the most downloaded game on Playstation 4 in 2016, partly thanks to it being available free of charge on release for Playstation Plus subscribers. Rocket League has already sold over 10 million copies across all platforms, and recently released a new mode called “Dropzone” and a DLC pack featuring a car from the upcoming The Fate of the Furious movie.
