Rocket League Cross Platform Parties Delayed Until Next Month

Cross platform game time is still happening for Rocket League and Psyonix is determined to make that happen, it’s just taking a little longer than expected. The season has been an ambitious one for the soccar game developer and they’ve got plenty of content planned well into September for great, Summer fun. Cross platform parties, or otherwise known as RocketIDs, are arriving to all platforms next month.

Unfortunately, though it was expected to launch this month, the team had to make the tough decision to delay its release for a better quality experience instead. So, when it does arrive, it will be a well-rounded experience for players. Here’s a snippet of the official announcement from Psyonix:

First, the most pressing news: we are still putting the finishing touches on RocketID — better known as Cross-Platform Parties — by making sure that it lives up to our standards and yours. With that in mind, we have decided to target RocketID for September (pending first-party certification) instead of this month as we had originally planned. It was a tough decision to make, yes, but our focus on quality — even at the expense of our schedule — is in place so that we can provide you with the excellent play experience that you deserve.”

With that being said, Rocket League’s August update is still on track that includes huge progression changes. Experience, levels, and online matches will see numerous adjustments. There will be level-up rewards, item slots, common items, and brand new experience mechanics. This doesn’t coincide with the crate feature, which will drop the same as it always does and that is not included with the level-up rewards.

Did you know that the Rocket League: Ultimate Edition drops at the end of August too? Plus, after the August update rolls out, the Rocket Pass will go live a week after. In other words, tons of exciting changes are happening.

Knowing this might disappoint a fair number of Rocket League players out there, are you still excited to see RocketID happen? Let us know what you think in the comments section below or start a conversation on DFTG Facebook page.
