The past few weeks have led to many conversations inside Psyonix and Epic and have highlighted the extraordinary challenges still faced by people of color and, in particular, the Black community in America and around the world. We’re committed to fighting racism and discrimination in our games and beyond. We want everyone in the Rocket League community to feel safe and welcome, whether they're playing with friends or with others online.
Over the past week, we performed an audit of our ban system to highlight areas where we can do better. We’ve updated the system to more effectively identify and eliminate racist, abusive, and hateful language from in-game text chat. While permanent game bans have always been part of the system, we’ve escalated the rate of punishment for violations, and have further efforts underway.
As a player, you can help by reporting any inappropriate online behavior that you experience via the "Report Player" button in the game pause menu. Once the player behavior is reviewed and action is taken, you will be notified the next time you start Rocket League.
Teams across Psyonix and Epic around the world are working on many other initiatives aiming to bring all people together through positive game experiences and to increase access to jobs and other opportunities in the game industry for people who haven’t had a fair chance to learn, to engage, and to achieve their full potential. Stay tuned for details over time.
Rocket League will always strive to be a welcome and safe place for all players.
