Rocket League Dropping macOS and Linux Support

Psyonix announces the end of support for Linux and macOS in Rocket League, their motorized association football/soccer mashup: They say you can still download and play them, but they will no longer be patched or supported going forward:
We want Rocket League to be the best experience possible for all our players. This includes adapting to use new technologies. This has made it more difficult to support macOS and Linux (SteamOS). Because of this, we will have a final patch for these versions in early March.

The macOS and Linux (SteamOS) versions will no longer be updated or supported after the final patch. You will still be able to download and install these versions, but some features will not function as expected.

If you purchased Rocket League for Mac or Linux on Steam you can download the Windows version. This version will run with full functionality on a PC (personal computer) with Windows 7 or newer.

Players on Mac can try running Rocket League on Windows with Apple's Boot Camp tool. Boot Camp is not something Psyonix officially supports. You can learn more here:

If you play Rocket League on Linux, you can try Steam's Proton app or Wine. These tools are not officially supported by Psyonix. Please see the links to both below.

  • Garage/Inventory (Your existing items will not be removed from your inventory)

  • Replays
  • Steam Workshop Maps (Must be downloaded before final patch)
