Earlier this month, Epic and Psyonix announced Rocket League Sideswipe, a version of the popular game that will be coming to Android and iOS later this year. However, thanks to the current Epic v Apple court proceedings, Epic and Psyonix could have their collective sights set on a bigger launch coming to mobile.
The documents revealed some of Epic’s current goals for its myriad of games and apps, including the likes of Fortnite, Houseparty, and Rocket League. In one slide, an intitiative called ‘Rocket League “Next”‘ is detailed with the following:
In court documents assembled by The Verge (via Android Police), it was revealed that Epic is working on creating an entirely new game launcher for the game which would work across the PC, consoles, and mobile. That’s right—the full version of Rocket League accessible right from your phone, from wherever you are.
Considering that we’re currently in Q2 2021, it would have been safe to assume that the mobile beta program likely would have already been opened. We wouldn’t be surprised if mobile development has been in the works for quite some time, considering that Rocket League is already available on practically every other platform.
Bringing Rocket League to mobile would be absolutely huge, provided that the cross-platform integration and touchscreen controls are fine-tuned enough. Other than that, there’s no reason to believe that it wouldn’t instantly become one of the best Android games without needing to use something like Steam Link or NVIDIA’s GeForce Now.
Even with this news coming out due to the Epic v Apple trial, it wouldn’t be a stretch to assume that Epic plans to push forward with its plans for Rocket League on mobile. However, the gaming giant is likely just awaiting the conclusion of the trial before sharing any more details about a potential release and beta program.
