It's proven a massive hit for the PlayStation 4 and PC but is a "Rocket League" Xbox One release imminent?

That's the burning question everyone who owns Microsoft's console have in mind - which something Psyonix CEO and studio director Dave Hagewood neither confirmed nor denied.

"[Laughs] I can't say," he told Red Bull Gaming. "We're looking at all kinds of platforms and there may be some announcements coming up at some point - hopefully by the end of the year - but I can't confirm that."

It wouldn't be the first time Psyonix said it's looking to release "Rocket League" in other platforms.

"We are absolutely, 100 percent going to other platforms," the developer's VP of marketing and communications, Jeremy Dunham told GameZone back in August. "What those platforms are and when we'll come to them, I don't know yet."

Pure Xbox took that to suggest that a "Rocket League" Xbox One release "is on the cards."

Franchise Herald previously reported that Psyonix announced a SteamOS and Mac port of their hit soccer-meets-RC cars video game.

Elsewhere in the interview, Hagewood revealed they'll keep "mixing things up" for the game.

"We're going to keep doing a lot of the same stuff, but we have a lot of really cool ideas for things to add in the future," he said.

Hagewood pointed to the just-released Mutators Pack that introduced many changes to "Rocket League" as an example.

"We want to add major feature updates to really change the nature of the game."

While happy of the success their game has reached, the Psyonix boss revealed they weren't expecting success of this scale. According to PlayStation Lifestyle, Hagewood said their partnership with Sony is which let "Rocket League" do well. In particular, their account manager, who was reportedly a fan of the game's predecessor, was the one who convinced Sony to give them a chance.

But is "Rocket League" finally ready for an Xbox One release? Stay tuned for updates.
