While cross-platform play has been implemented in Rocket League for quite some time, there has been no dedicated solution to cross-platform party chat.
Psyonix revealed on Twitter that the development studio is actively working to release a support system for their vehicle/sports hybrid. Psyonix is hopeful to have the update released later this year, but have not announced specific details.
Hey there! We’re actively working on cross-platform party support for a 2018 release. 🙂

Written on the the Rust website, Garry Newman published a blog announcing to audiences that Rust would be leaving Early Access after four years.
While this does not bring the notion that the game is complete, the survival game is merely taking its next big step forward. As Rust leaves Early Access on February 8th, the game’s price will rise from $19.99 to $34.99.
