Epic Games acquires Rocket League Developer Psyonix

Rocket League

Studio Psyonix has announced that it is joining Epic Games via a blog post on the official site. In case you’re wondering what it means for the Rocket League and its community, Psyonix has prepared a short FAQ that you can find below. Note: initially the statements indicated that Rocket League will be pulled out from Steam once it moves to the Epic Games Store, but the FAQ was later changed to include the edited part. Take it for what you will:

In the short term, nothing will change at all! We’re still committed to providing Rocket League with frequent updates that have new features, new content, and new ways to play the game for as long as you’ll have us.

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. We believe that bringing Rocket League to new audiences with more support is a win for everybody.

EDIT: Rocket League is and remains available on Steam. Anyone who owns the game through Steam can still play it and can look forward to continued support. Thanks!

  • What does this mean for the game’s ecosystem?” We think this is a great move for the Rocket League Esports ecosystem because it significantly increases our potential reach and resources, just like it does for the game itself. We really do believe that you’ll find our future in esports to be very exciting — especially in the near future, where on June 21-23 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) finals will end our 7th season with a bang!
  • What happens to the Psyonix team? We are the same team that we’ve always been, only now, we have the power and experience of Epic Games behind us!

The success of Rocket League would not have been possible without you, our community. Your loyalty, excitement, and creativity in supporting Psyonix has helped us become who we are, and we look forward to you helping us for many more years to come. You have our sincerest thanks and appreciation.

Respectfully,

The Psyonix Team
