Psyonix has today announced that they have partnered with Warner Bros. to bring an updated version of Rocket League to store shelves. Warner Bros. will thus replace 505 Games as its publisher. The love child of this new partnership will be available later this year, whilst it is already available to purchase online.
But surprisingly there is no clarification of what additional content is included. We have been told that this will be aired at a later date.
Since its original launch, Rocket League has gone from strength to strength. It has enjoyed unrivaled success, unimaginable player bases, and an unfathomable amount of hours sunk into its matches. Its content offering has also seen expansion, with new cars and arenas frequently joining the roster. But recently it has been all quiet on the Western Front, with little to report. This additional and updated release could well be Psyonix’s last attempt to capture the audience that still eludes them, before taking stock and mulling over what the future may be for Rocket League and where it may take them.
The success means then that there is enthusiasm shown by both sides, who have worked together previously on themed additional content.
Jeremy Dunham, vice president of Psyonix said, ‘we first collaborated on Batman v Superman DLC for Rocket League in early 2016 and we have continued to be impressed with the team’s knowledge, professionalism, reach and enthusiasm for video games.’
Meanwhile Kevin Kebodeaux, senior vice president of Warner Bros., said, ‘Rocket League has such wide appeal across all audiences, it’s no wonder the game is such a huge success.’
In total, Rocket League has been nominated for over 150 Game of the Year awards. Could there be more to come?
Are you one of Rocket League’s 36 million players, or one of what seems like a few who are yet to become a Ford fallback?
