Since it’s release in 2015, the fuel-powered soccer game has become a major success among the online multiplayer gamers, and even got a fair place in the eSport community. Millions of players are kicking the Rocket League ball with their front bumpers, and you could spend your whole day (and night) watching matches shared on Twitch. And today, developer Psyonix is interested in expanding the competition to another overwhelming success: the Nintendo Switch.
In an interview with IGN, Jeremy Dunham (Vice President of Psyonix Studios) confirmed that they’re evaluating the technical requirements of the Nintendo Switch to possibly bring their game on it. But most importantly, they want to have an estimate of the demand from their community. Well, if that’s not a nudge to the Rocket League players, we don’t know what is. Come on guys, let Psyonix know that you want your game on the Nintendo Switch!
“Just like all the other platforms, we are evaluating it. We’re looking to see what the technical requirements are. We’re looking to see what kind of true community demand there is. We’re looking to see how it would benefit the community as a whole. So we’re still in that evaluation phase. It’s definitely too early to say that it wouldn’t happen, but it’s also definitely too early to say that it would.”
“I think we’ve shown over time we’re a community based company, and so what we’re doing first is seeing what kind of impact that would have and who needs it and who wants the game and we’ll go from there. Luckily the platform’s only been out for a month, so we have plenty of time to look to see how it’s doing and what our audience wants.”
