Psyonix has announced that it will begin retiring select crates with the release of Rocket League‘s next update.
Following the update, all four of the game’s Champion Crates will no longer drop at the end of matches. Psyonix notes that this is only for drops and will not remove already obtained crates from players’ inventories.
“This Champion series retirement means that there will be fewer Crates to account for when the game drops one for you,” the developer adds. “In other words, removing older Crates means that newer Crates (and their newer Items) will appear for you more often.”
Psyonix will then continue to retire other crates on a six-month schedule. However, items found inside retired crates could still be added into new crates in the future, so there’s a chance for players who miss out.
More details about the game’s next update will be shared soon.
