As with any new announcement, we don't actually have anything specific about when this upcoming Rocket League mobile game is coming out.

All we do know is that it's due later this year and it will be free to play.

This isn't too surprising when you consider the fact that Rocket League has recently gone free to play, but it does mean that we should expect some microtransactions going forwards.

Platforms

What makes this Rocket League a little different from the others is that Sideswipe is exclusively a mobile game.
