Rocket League currently supports cross-platform play. If you’re playing on Switch, you can match together with someone on an Xbox One or PC.
Psyonix intends to take this a step further with cross-platform party support. The functionality will be added in later this year, the studio confirmed via Twitter.
Hey there! We’re actively working on cross-platform party support for a 2018 release. 🙂

Cross-platform parties will allow for the ability to create a party of players from different platforms that can move together between matches as a group without having to constantly invite people into a private match. As the way things are now, parties are limited to other players on the same platform.
