Now that Sony’s opened its doors to cross-play on the PlayStation 4, another title seems likely to jump aboard. Rocket League, which is one of the games that the Japanese giant’s previous policy blocked, is looking like it’ll support players across Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PS4 soon, as Psyonix has provided an update on the feature.
While it didn’t specifically announce anything, explaining that these things take time, it pointed out how passionate it is about cross-play. “It is with the greatest joy that I can now acknowledge that all the major consoles are making progress towards a truly all-platform cross-platform play experience,” a spokesperson said. “I want everyone to understand just how much of a priority this is for us and always has been for our team.”
Sony is currently conducting a cross-play beta test in Fortnite, but it’s indicated that it will eventually roll the functionality out to other games and services in due time. Rocket League will almost certainly be one title that gets the update, with Minecraft also on the agenda as well. Expect a lot of stories like this over the coming weeks.

I told you so.
I feel like we are goimg to see quite a few of these articles over the coming weeks
Minecraft won't get it - not if MS are still forcing you to use an Xbox Live login in order to play online. Plus, that version of Minecraft is gimped right down with less content and access to un-supervised servers where people have been scammed out of money and kids have encountered 'colourful' language...
In regards to Rocket League - the dev said on twitter that it isn't that simple when someone asked them. To which I responded asking why they are saying that now when beforehand they said it was 'the push of a button'. They said that to force Sony/Show them up a little, yet now they are acting like it's not as easy as they said - what a surprise...
But no one will press MS for this. It’s quite telling. I was never against cross-play but I also never thought it to be totally necessary.
Playstation v xbox competition would be epic
@Rob_230 Push Sqaure Vs. Nintendo life. PS4 Vs. Switch. That would be awesome. As long as we can keep it from getting too salty. Unless it’a garlic salt. I like garlic salt.
@Jaz007 haha yes! Id totally be up for push square v nintendo life!
Really not bothered , I get beaten by some randoms one day , I play another day and get beaten by another set of randoms.
I guess if I knew anybody with an Xbox all this would be exciting developments but Ive never been interested in crossplay as all my generation who had PS1 are still with PS. It's mainly for the old folks , that should be Sony's new tagline.
@Kyroki @Quintumply @Hego @simon_fitzgerald @anchorsam_9 @triplegk Right boys we need some serious training here. And I mean serious. If we are going to take on Xbox and Nintendo we probably wont win with our current tactics of triple hit own goals, missing the ball and watching it roll in and forgetting to go for kickoff.
Anyone else reading we are recruiting for the Pushsquare squad and need another 4 players. Things are gonna get nasty....
@themcnoisy I'll get some training if you all agree to take up my method of making weird noises every time I hit the ball.
@TripleGK Do I smell a Netflix series in the making?? Also I’m up for regular matches for “training” purposes
@Jaz007 Are you in a team mate? You can join our squad if you like.
@themcnoisy Since you asked, I’m down. I’ll have to train a little since it’s been a small moment since I’ve played, but this sounds like fun.
@Jaz007 Awesome! We need to be in a RL session and then I can sign you to the club.
