Original: A leaked image found on Nintendo's website suggests that Rocket League's free-to-play release date is slated for next week.
Eagle-eyed fans have spotted an image on Nintendo's website announcing that Rocket League is set to go free-to-play next Wednesday, on September 23.
Nintendo Reveals Rocket League Free-to-Play Release Date
The page has since been taken down and developer Psyonix has yet to comment on the matter. If the leak is accurate, we'll likely get official confirmation in the following days.
A September 23 release date would put Rocket League's awaited free-to-play update one day past its announced Summer 2020 release window.
The update is a big deal for the vehicular soccer game not just because it removes the entry fee, potentially letting new players in, but also because it's when Rocket League will no longer be purchasable on Steam, moving to the Epic Games Store.
It will also introduce major changes to Tournaments alongside cross-platform progression and more.
On top of that, Rocket League's free-to-play update will launch at the same time as Season 14 will end, making way for a brand new competitive season.
