Rocket League servers down: Psyonix confirm login issues, RLCS cancellation
Rocket League servers are down this evening with developers Psyonix confirming a major outage on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
The game outage appears to have started a number of hours ago, with problems first starting at around 5.30pm. Ironically the same time as GTA Online and Red Dead Online also going offline.
At the time of writing, no one seems to quite know what the root cause of this outage is or indeed how long this server disruption might last.
The Psyonix support team has on several occasions been forced to put the game into maintenance with the developer explaining to fans: "We are putting Rocket League back into maintenance mode for a few minutes, and we'll update here when online access is restored. Thank you."
The last update from the developer, as of 9.19pm GMT reads:
"We're aware that server access is currently down, updates to follow."
What happens to make today's outage even more frustrating for the developer, is that as a result, Psyonic has had to delay it's scheduled Rocket League eSports events due to take place this weekend.
A message from the developer confirmed they would be moving these to a later date due to the ongoing issues.
"Today's RLCS matches have been postponed and will be moved to a later date," Rocket League support explained earlier today..
"We understand that this is frustrating, but we feel it is in the best interest of competitive integrity to move them rather than attempt to play them out. We, apologise and we'll have more updates soon."
Independent outage monitor Down Detector has received a surge of Rocket League down reports with the majority of issues relating to connection problems.
The Down Detector outage map says the problems are mainly hitting users in the UK, Europe and large parts of the US.
Down Detector has also seen a peak of over 1000 'Rocket League down' reports across the world from users in the past few hours.
