When Psyonix, Inc.’s Rocket League lands on Xbox One in February it will be sans cross-platform play, a feature that’s included in the already-released PC and PlayStation 4 versions of the game.
“The Xbox platform doesn’t allow for crossplay matchmaking between other systems as a general practice across all titles,” Psyonix tweeted on Friday.
Psyonix’s tweet seems to imply that Microsoft does not allow cross-platform play in any games on its consoles. However, World of Tanks is playable across Xbox 360 and Xbox One and #IDARB across Xbox One and PC. Gigantic and Fable Legends PC and Xbox One players will also be able to play together when those upcoming titles release. Even as far back as 2007 Shadowrun was playable across Xbox 360 and PC.
Rocket League‘s Xbox One port was announced during last week’s The Game Awards where it took home hardware for Best Sports/Racing Game and Best Indie Game. The Xbox One version will include exclusive content from the Gears of War and Halo franchises.
