0

The hit Psyonix racing and football car game “Rocket League” may be coming to the Xbox Oneat least based on a game rating posted by the Taiwanese Game Software Rating Regulations Board.

As per the Taiwanese Game Software Rating Regulations Board’s listing, “Rocket League” will be available for the Xbox One. While the presence of such a listing does not guarantee anything, it does greatly hint that the game may finally be having the long promised release across other platforms.

Currently, “Rocket League” game is only available for the PlayStation 4 and PC, with the game initially being a free title for PlayStation Plus subscribers before becoming a paid game on the PlayStation Store. The initial free release of the game was part of a partnership between Psyonix and Sony.

While this rating listing may be news, game developer Psyonix already previously announced that the game may be having a new version for a different platform soon. Psyonix Vice President for Marketing Jeremy Dunham previously announced that “Rocket League” is being worked on to be developed for new systems.

“Yes, we are definitely bringing Rocket League to additional platforms,” Dunham previously said. “We’ll have an official announcement of what platforms those are (and when) a little further down the line.”

With such a listing for the Xbox One version put up online, previous statements made by Psyonix Studio Director Dave Hagewood can be recalled, where he hinted that an announcement by the end of the year can be expected even though he also said that nothing was sure as of that moment.

“I can’t say,” Hagewood replied to questions about the possibility of having an Xbox One version for the game. “We’re looking at all kinds of platforms and there may be some announcements coming up at some point. Hopefully before the end of the year, but I can’t confirm that.”
