While Nintendo’s first party games dominated their E3 presentation, the announcement of Rocket League for Switch was a huge coup for the company. The incredibly popular vehicular soccer game has been lauded by gamers on other platforms. Psyonix have admitted that they were worried about porting the game to Switch, but it has apparently been progressing very well. In an interview with VentureBeat, Psyonix has said that they’re actually ahead of schedule. While we still don’t have a concrete release date, the promised 2017 window looks promising. Check out the full interview here.
“We’re actually ahead of where we thought we’d be. We didn’t think we would have it running this smooth, this early. For a while we were concerned about whether we’d have anything to show at E3 at all. We have a very talented team at Psyonix. Our engineers have done a lot of hard work to make sure this runs as well as it does already. We’ve already discovered things in the last few weeks that we weren’t aware of a few weeks ago. It’s already made the game perform incredibly. We’re very encouraged.”
