Rocket League has been removed in the latest update from Chasel Habakkuk's blog

A new Rocket League update is now available for download on the Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X, as well as official patch notes. Currently, at the time of writing, the update has only been available for a little over an hour, and it is unclear how large the file size of the update will be. For the avoidance of doubt, we have no idea how long it will take you to download the update. What we do know is what the update does, thanks to the patch notes that were previously mentioned.

The most notable change is that voice chat has been temporarily removed from the game due to the fact that it does not meet modern standards. In order to accomplish this, a new and improved voice chat system is currently being developed. However, it will not be ready until early 2022, which presumably means that voice chat will be unavailable in the game for several months. The following are the complete patch notes for the latest update, which were provided by the game's official website:

Text-to-Speech
With the release of v2.04, we are temporarily removing voice chat. We are aware that the current voice chat system does not meet modern standards, making it difficult to use in a fast-paced game environment. We are working to improve the system. We're also aware that some players have reported performance issues when using in-game voice chat -- such as lag in the middle of a match or service disruption -- and we don't want voice chat to interfere with the overall quality of the game experience.
Earlier this summer, we stated that we are working on improving and expanding the functionality of the buy rocket league items voice chat system. We are on track to reintroduce voice chat to the game in the first quarter of 2022. In the coming months, we'll provide more information about voice chat making a triumphant return next year.

Fixed a bug that prevented the PS5 from supporting 120 frames per second.
Players on the PS5 can now play in 4K at 120 frames per second without HDR and 4K at 60 frames per second with HDR.
Compatible hardware (an HDMI 2.1-capable 4K/120 Hz display and an HDMI 2.1 cable) is required in order to play at 120 frames per second.
Support for 120 frames per second also necessitates the use of the proper video settings on your console. To adjust the video quality settings on your PlayStation 5, follow these steps:When you enable 120 Hz output, HDR is disabled in Rocket League. To enable 120 Hz output, go to Settings from the PlayStation 5 Home Screen -- Select Screen and Video -- Select Video Output -- Set Enable 120 Hz Output to Automatic.
If Enable 120 Hz Output is set to Off, Rocket League will output in 4K at 60 frames per second with HDR. More information can be found in this PlayStation 5 4K Resolution Guide.

Rocket League is available for free on the Nintendo Switch, the PC, the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation 5, the Xbox One, the Xbox Series S, and the Xbox Series X.
