Rocket League


 

Rocket League developer Psyonix has announced that it is being acquired by Fortnite developer Epic Games.

The acquisition is expected to be completed “near the end of May to early June 2019” and in the short term will have little to no impact on players, with Psyonix announcing plans to continue supporting Rocket League with new features and content.

“In the long-term, we expect to bring Rocket League to the Epic Games store and to leverage our new relationship to grow the game in ways we couldn’t do on our own before,” Psyonix added. “We believe that bringing Rocket League to new audiences with more support is a win for everybody.”

Many players have voiced concerns that the move to the Epic Games Store means the game will be removed from Steam. The developer has since stated that Rocket League “is and remains available on Steam” and current owners “can look forward to continued support.”

In terms of the game’s esports scene, Psyonix stated that the acquisition is a “great move” for Rocket League esports, as it “significantly increases” the developer’s potential reach and resources.

Rocket League is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
