Psyonix announced that both the Mac and Linux versions of Rocket League are losing multiplayer support soon.
Seems like Mac and Linux Rocket League players won’t be able to enjoy multiplayer anymore. That’s right, Psyonix announced that it’s going to drop the multiplayer support for these versions of the game. Pretty horrible news, since the charm of this car/soccer extravaganza of the game is at its peak when you’re playing with a bunch of other players. On the flip side, if you own a Mac or Linux version of Rocket League you can ask for a refund. After all, these versions of the game are getting locked out from the most fun part.
Why is the multiplayer support for these versions getting dropped anyhow? Because of the DirectX 11 transition. Rocket League will no longer be a 32-bit game. Later this year Psyonix is making the shift to 64-bit and it’s switching from DX9 to DX11. No more support for DX9 means no more multiplayer, as Mac and Linux versions need DX9 for OpenGL. It also seems that only 0.3% of Rocket League players use Mac or Linux. That’s not enough people to give them an incentive to keep putting in the time, effort, and money for these versions.
