Developers of Rocket League Psyonix announced on their Twitter that Rocket League has reached thirty million registered players. The tweet is a thank-you to all of the players for this incredible milestone. The news comes on the heels of the announcement that Rocket League sold one million physical copies on top of 9.5 million digital ones.
Rocket League is the only sports game that isn’t the same game you’ve gotten every year before, just with a different roster and that one player having a mustache. Instead, it’s a high-speed game of RC-car soccer (or football, for non-Americans). The game came out in July 2015, and it’s only getting more and more popular. We’ve written recently about Rocket League selling one million physical copies. This is pretty impressive for a game that primarily focuses on online sales (of which it has 9.5 million).
Now, developer Psyonix announced on their Twitter that Rocket League has reached a whole new milestone. The game now has thirty million registered players, which is a pretty incredible number for game that’s almost two years old. In fact, it seems that the numbers are only going up. To be fair, some of those accounts might be dead or rarely-used ones, but still. Thirty million is not a number to sniff at.
For reference, Rocket League reached twenty-five million registered players in January. That’s five million new accounts in four months. One of the reasons that the game is so popular is certainly the way Psyonix supports it with constant free and paid DLC. In fact, the Rocket League Easter event wrapped up recently, during which players could win Easter-themed items in multiplayer matches. Also, the game often has different tie-ins, the most recent of which is with Fate of the Furious, featuring a new car, decals and wheels.
