Rocket League is a break-out success for indie developer Psyonix, launching to fame on PC before spreading its wings to join the console crew with a PS4 and Xbox One release. Now in a new interview with IGN, studio Vice President Jeremy Dunham says his team is deciding whether or not they should focus their efforts on a version for the Nintendo Switch.

“Just like all the other platforms, we are evaluating it. We’re looking to see what the technical requirements are. 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.”

“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. 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.”

The demand for the game on consoles is why Psyonix eventually pursued a PlayStation 4 and an Xbox One version of the game, both of which have been massive successes for the development team. With the Nintendo Switch predicted to sell more than the Wii, it seems likely that this game could end up on Nintendo Switch, especially with the split-screen multiplayer mode.

Psyonix has been a very community-focused development team, so if Nintendo Switch fans want the game on the console, the best way to do that is to show your support to the team by reaching out to them and letting them know you’d be interested in playing the game on your new console.
