From MOBAs, to shooters, to battle royales, Hi-Rez Studios makes games in some of the most popular and crowded genres out there. Even though they’re a much smaller studio compared to their monolithic rivals like Tencent and Blizzard, they’ve managed to find a way to punch above their weight.
They’ve also won me over as a fan of their work.
Fortnite opened the doors for cross-platform play in 2018. Now it’s Rocket League‘s turn. Psyonix announced today that their amazing car soccer game is playable across any combination of Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch players! Up until now, PlayStation 4 was segregated from the others.
Really hoping that all multiplayer games going forward are cross-compatible. At this point, its been proven to work on a technical level. It’s only been businesses protecting their best interests that have kept the gates up for so long. This is a great step forward and I hope we get more news like this in 2019! In particular, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Overwatch to make the leap!
