Rocket League Season 5 release date

The anticipation that comes with the release of any new season within gaming is a big one for fans, and Rocket League is no slouch when it comes to new content for fans to dive into.

While we don’t know for certain when the new Rocket League season is going to release, we can pinpoint an estimate based on the duration of previous seasons.

Season 3 was released back on April 7, 2021, and ran over the course of four months, with the current season being available to players beginning on August 11.


Season 4 implemented some new cars for players to check out!

With all this said, expect the fifth season of Rocket League to release sometime during the middle of December, as this would be four months since the premiere of season four!

Predictions – New cars, game modes, more

There’s a lot that could be in store for players with the release of Season 5, as during the last season they implemented a wide array of content.

They added new matchmaking penalties for casual games, along with restrictions to the amount of rank disparity you can have within your parties.

So, keep your eyes peeled for more news in regards to the fifth season of Rocket League in the coming months/weeks.
