Rocket League’s cross-platform addition is delayed

RocketID, the cross-platform update for the popular vehicular soccer game Rocket League, has been delayed. The update was supposed to roll out this month, but developer Psyonix said today it’s not going to happen.

“As outlined in our Summer Roadmap Update, our goal was to release RocketID in September, but we’ve made the difficult decision to push it out of September and include it in a future update,” Psyonix wrote. “We want to ensure that RocketID is operating flawlessly on all platforms before its release, and this extra time will ensure that you’ll be playing and partying up with friends on different platforms with ease.”

The team gave a follow-up on the massive Progression Update. Hotfixes were made to fix problems with the game’s physics, and the developers made it clear on how players’ past progression would work in the game’s new system.

“Another change we made after the Progression Update, was focused on where Level 75 ‘Rocketeer’ players would land in the new XP system. Initially, most of our Rocketeers ended up between Levels 110-120 and our fix the following week adjusted placement in the new system, pushing most of those affected players up into the Level 200-225 range.”

“Two major factors went into determining how you would be converted into the new progression system: online matches played — which excludes private matches and is based on our own internally-tracked match history — and earned XP. The internal match history we used for this conversion process may not line up with what you see on stat-tracking websites for a number of reasons, including local save data file corruption or manipulation. Along with matches played and XP, we’ve factored in progress on your last level before the update, while granting up to 10 additional levels to players based on where they fell within the curve of matches played by their same-level peers.”

Is Sony to blame for the holdup? In the past, Sony has made it very clear they have no intentions of cross-play with other platforms besides PC. Will Rocket League break that mold?
