Rocket League Future Updates Detailed in Spring 2018 Roadmap

Share this:

The Rocket League team has revealed the spring 2018 roadmap, featuring a ton of new content and gameplay tweaks.

For spring this year, patches will alternate between content updates and feature updates. This will allow the team to “update on a more frequent and regular cycle, guarantees [players] won’t have to wait too long between Competitive Seasons, and lets [the devs] spend more time perfecting and bug fixing features before they go live.”

The next update is set to launch on February 7.
