Jeremy Dunham, vice president of Psyonix while speaking during his recent interview has confirmed that the work for Rocket League cross network play between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One has been completed and it could be started within a few hours, all it needs is approval from the Sony.
Work on the cross network play was started some months ago. While speaking with IGN, vice president Dunham hinted that the new feature could be up very soon which can allow PlayStation 4 and Xbox One gamers to play against each other in a game for the very first time. He said;
“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.”
It appears that the Microsoft had given the green light to the developer for the support long time ago, whereas on the other hand, Sony didn’t issue any statement. Dunham thinks that there’s a possibility that Sony might say yes, although the company is very big so it’s difficult to speculate anything at the moment. But they are in touch with the Japanese tech giant.
Earlier this year, Microsoft sent an invitation to the Sony for cross network play between the two consoles and Windows PCs with Rocket League being the first supported game. However, Sony hasn’t made any clear confirmation nor they denied for the support. The game is already supported with cross network play between PCs and Xbox One. Stay tuned for more updates.
