Rocket League is already a pretty popular franchise for Epic Games and while it’s not doing too great with Fortnite on iPhone and iPad right now, that isn’t going to get it down.

The company has confirmed that Rocket League Sideswipe is currently in development and will be available later this year.

Set to launch on iPhone and Android, a blog post by Psyonix confirmed that the title will be a “reimagined” version of the Rocket League game that we have all grown to love in recent years. The game will also make use of on-screen touch controls, although we’re sure you can also use a Bluetooth controller if you’d prefer.

The game will see 1v1 and 2v2 matches where gamers play around two minutes per game. The idea is that it makes the game more mobile-friendly, as does the side-scrolling aspect.

Rocket League Sideswipe will feature mobile controls that are easy to pick up whether you’re a master of Rocket League or a new player still learning your way around the field. Plus, there are advanced mechanics, just like Rocket League, for those who want to climb the Competitive Ranks. In the garage, Rocket League Sideswipe will have robust car customization similar to Rocket League. Players can also expect an online Ranking system for competitive play. We have a lot more to reveal about the game in the coming months as we get closer to release.

There’s no hard date for when the game will ship, but we’re told it will be “later this year,” whenever that turns out to be.
