Psyonix vice-president Jeremy Dunham has gone on record stating that development work on cross-network play for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One has been completed, though it’ll require approval by Sony in order to get the system up and running. The statement was made in a conversation with IGN, which shed further light on the situation.
“Right now, we’re literally at the point where all we need is the go-ahead on the Sony side and we can, in less than a business day, turn it on and have it up and working no problem. It’d literally take a few hours to propagate throughout the whole world, so really we’re just waiting on the permission to do so.” said Dunham, as he clarified that the only thing left to do is gain corporate approval.
The potential existence of Cross-Network play for Rocket League has been discussed for the last few months, though with Sony’s reluctance to greenlight such a partnership in recent events it’ll remain to be seen whether this feature will ever be available to the public.
