Rocket League will use Unreal Engine 5 in the future

Rocket League has managed to carve out a sizable niche for itself after being released in 2015.

However, Psyonix's game is in danger of losing out to its newer competition. 

As the player count dwindles, Psyonix's latest attempt to give the game a boost is upgrade the game's engine to Unreal Engine 5. 

Rocket League's senior community manager, Devin Connors, confirmed the upgrade in a reply on a Reddit thread. 

With that said, fans shouldn't expect Rocket League's move to Unreal Engine 5 to come anytime soon.

Fortnite is still in Unreal Engine 4 and will not make the jump until 2022. 

If it's any consolation, we do know the power of Unreal Engine 5 already.

The Coalition has since confirmed that it's going to make the next Gears of War game in Unreal Engine 5.

Game Science also switched to Unreal Engine 5 for Black Myth: Wukong.

Here's hoping that fans can still wait for the upgrade to Unreal Engine 5. 

If not, then this will all have been for nothing.
