Rocket League on Nintendo Switch has been a question thrown at developer Psyonix since the home gaming system was still known as Nintendo NX. But, now that the console has been revealed to the world, many have flocked to ask the developer whether there is any more news on their plans.

The physics-based vehicular football game has become a smash-hit worldwide with sales surpassing six million copies and having topped 18 million unique players a year after it released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. But, what of the Nintendo Switch version?

“We are excited as you are regarding the release of Nintendo Switch however, we don’t have enough information at this time if it will happen,” Psyonix wrote in a since-deleted response to the repeat question. “For the meantime, let’s both keep our fingers crossed that it will.”

Way back in May 2016, when asked if they would release the game on Nintendo NX the developer’s vice president of marketing and communications Jeremy Dunham had shared with Gaming Bolt: “It is certainly something we would consider. We consider all platforms, and whether or not they would make sense for Rocket League, whether or not they fit our timelines, whether or not we can afford to make our games on them.

“Every new brand new platform you work on, that is development time you take away from adding features to the existing versions of the game, for a version that the public isn’t even playing yet. So these are all considerations we have to make when we bring up new platforms.”

Nintendo Switch will release worldwide on March 3rd, priced at £279.99 ($299.99).
