The Epic v. Apple lawsuit trial began on Monday, and has already received a bunch of leaks revealing upcoming games in development all across the games industry. One such title that has been revealed is the existence of a Rocket League mobile port which is expected to release later in 2021.

This was revealed within the court documents belonging to the lawsuit trial, which are available to read publicly, but it has also been picked up by ResetEra in a forum post made on Monday afternoon.

The mobile version of Rocket League is confirmed to be a “next generation client” with a full game experience across all platforms, including mobile. This means it’ll have full cross-play and cross-progression between PC, console and mobile. So you can be playing the game on your PC or console and then immediately switch over to the game on mobile while retaining all your unlocks and statistics.

This version of Rocket League is not to be confused with Rocket League Sideswipe, which is the upcoming 2D version which is in development exclusively for mobile devices. It’s also unknown if this leak means the game is coming to both iOS and Android or just one of the platforms for the time being.

It’ll also have a beta sometime before launch before it reaches the other platforms too, and this will occur a while before the official release date.

On the other hand, Rocket League Sideswipe is set for release later this year. Fully built for mobile, this game features 1v1 and 2v2 matches in a 2D arena which emulates the experience of the main game. It also has both controller and touch control support.

Rocket League and Rocket League Sideswipe are both expected to launch on mobile later this year, and we’ll update you when more info about the release dates is available.
