Rocket League launched back in 2015 for PC and PlayStation 4, in those five years, Psyonix has announced that over 75 million players have downloaded the game, the game also had featured over five billion matches and 29 billion goals has been scored.
Certainly, the crazy idea has been proved successful, rocket-powered cars, a giant ball, and two goals and up to six players on the field. Psyonix created a very fun game, that’s similar to football, but with cars.
The five years between Rocket League’s launch and today have flown by like they just picked up a corner boost. To say we at Psyonix are thankful for the community’s continued support is an understatement. We know Rocket League wouldn’t be where it is today without your unparalleled passion for Soccer, and what you’ve accomplished in-game is simply unbelievable.
In the past five years, Rocket League has gone from two launch platforms to four, and available cars jumped from 10 to over 70. Nearly a dozen new modes have made it into the game, pushing the total number of games played to 5 billion! Rocket Pass is in its sixth iteration. The Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) is approaching its tenth season. Not only that, but the game has seen 14 Competitive Seasons with Rewards, the addition of Item and Esports Shops, cross-platform play, and so many more additional features. To put it in Quick Chat language: Wow!
Psyonix is planning to make the game even bigger, thanks to a partnership with Tencent, both companies agreed to launch the game for free in China, the decision has been proved successful a larger population and cosmetic micro-transactions are very profitable for both Tencent and Psyonix.
