Psyonix’s Rocket League launched about two years ago and it’s become one of the most popular games currently on the market. Having launched across three platforms so far (and a Switch version coming later this year), the game boasts a massive online community and a very strong presence in the eSports sector. Despite its major popularity, the developers don’t have any plans to build upon it with a sequel(s) anytime soon. Instead, they want to focus on consistently improving the existing game.
During a recent interview with Engadget, Psyonix’s Jeremy Dunham had this to say about the future of Rocket League:
“We’re not trying to build six Rocket Leagues. We’re not looking forward to when Rocket League 2 and 3 and 4 are coming out. Rocket League is the game we’re gonna keep updating. It’s important to us to keep that going, cross-generation, across multiple platforms without sacrificing anything.”
On the topic of updates, Rocket League will actually be getting a pretty big one in just a few weeks in honor of its two-year anniversary.
Rocket League is avaliable right now on Steam, PS4 and Xbox One. It will be blasting onto Switch this holiday season. The Switch version will feature cross-network play with Steam and Xbox One players.
