A new job listing posted at Epic Games has seemingly confirmed that Rocket League, the popular vehicular footie title from developer Psyonix, is migrating to Unreal Engine 5 at some point down the line.
The ‘What you’ll do’ section of the job reveals the following details:
The Marketing department continues to build out its team in order to maintain and expand its ability to support Rocket League’s ongoing initiatives, as well as future Psyonix projects including Rocket League: Sideswipe and Rocket League’s move to UE5. The role would create a dedicated resource to all copy and messaging development needs within the marketing department.
Epic Games hasn’t announced anything about Rocket League moving to UE5 just yet, but from the look of things we won’t have to wait too long.
Rocket League recently launched its PS5 upgrade, which includes support for 4K and 120 FPS via Quality and Performance modes, respectively. The game has also brought Ratchet & Clank into the action this week, and you can read more about that here.
