Psyonix has shared that they are “evaluating” whether to release Rocket League on Nintendo Switch, looking to see whether there is community demand for it.
The physics-based vehicular football game has become a smash-hit worldwide with sales surpassing six million copies and more than 18 million unique players taking to the pitch.
“Just like all the other platforms, we are evaluating it. We’re looking to see what the technical requirements are,” Psyonix vice president Jeremy Dunham explained to IGN.
“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.”
He went on to share that the decision would largely be reflected in whether the community was interested in seeing Rocket League come to the console.
“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,” Dunham added. “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.”
