The Xbox One X is the most powerful console that Microsoft has made to date. So many developers have updated their titles to take full advantage of the console’s improved performance but Rocket League’s Psyonix is not one of these yet. Psyonix now says that it won’t release the Rocket League Xbox One X update until the end of this year.
Psyonix said a few months back that it would update Rocket League for the Xbox One X in the not too distant future. It didn’t give an exact date, but the developer’s words didn’t suggest that players would have to wait for a very long time for the update. So this is disappointing news.
The developer has now detailed the Rocket League development roadmap for the year and it says clearly that “We are now targeting Xbox One X support for late 2018.” Again, no exact date, so we can only guess.
There’s no need to freak out. It doesn’t necessarily mean that Psyonix is facing any difficulties. It could just be that Xbox One X support is low on its list of priorities for the year. Fans can expect new licensed premium DLC for the title in March as well as a new feature update around the same time.
