Sony has been pretty hesitant when it comes to allowing cross-play on the PlayStation 4, but following the success of Fortnite it’s looking like the company has seen the light.
The ever-popular Rocket League is the latest game to get full cross-platform play, and people are pretty excited about the news.
“With special thanks to all of our friends and colleagues at PlayStation, we are thrilled to announce that starting right now, Rocket League has entered the PlayStation Cross-Play Beta program!
“Players on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Steam PC can now randomly matchmake with or against each other in all Online match types (i.e. Casual, Competitive, and Extra Modes).”
Dunham went on to thank the many fans of Rocket League for making this happen, saying: “Today’s announcement is an important one for us here at Psyonix, because we know how much our community has wanted full cross-platform support for quite some time.
“It’s because of you, our fans, and our generous partners on all systems and services that have made this possible in the first place. On behalf of the entire team, THANK YOU for your passion and persistence as we continue to do our best to make Rocket League the best experience we can.”
All My Friends ????

Another went on to say: “This is the beacon for other game developers to get full cross-platform implemented, and awesome news for us gamers!”
