"Surprising" New Rocket League Update on the Way

It's something fans have been asking for, developer teases.


A new Rocket League update described by developer Psyonix as "major" and "surprising" is on the way. In an interview with IGN, Psyonix VP Jeremy Dunham said the developer will start to promote this new update in an official capacity around the time of the Rocket League Championship Series tournament, which runs August 6-7.

"We've got something brewing that a lot of people have been asking for in different forms but is also very surprising," he said. "It's going to be interesting, but it's going to be cool too."

Dunham went on to say that Psyonix doesn't intend to change what makes Rocket League great, but hopes that what ever is in the new update can offer something new to players.

"We don't want to get in the way of playing the game in the way that they've fallen in love with it, but we also don't want them to think that there aren't other options for them," he said. "That's why a lot of the modes that we've introduced--Snow Day, Hoops, the Mutators, and some of the things we have planned for the future [emphasis added]--are coming in to supplement what we've done as the base game, to give people options and feed their curiosity without taking away from what keeps them coming back."

Overall, Psyonix is planning to be "more agressive" with Rocket League DLC going forward.

In other Rocket League news, Psyonix confirmed back in March that the developer was ready to activate PlayStation 4-Xbox One cross-play, but was waiting on the politics of the matter to clear. That is still the case, Dunham recently reiterated.
