A year later and people are continuing to buy Rocket League, and consequently, have no life afterwards.
Psyonix has revealed Rocket League has sold over 7 million copies, which is up 2 million from the last tally in June. A sales breakdown by system was not provided, however, Psyonix has previously said the PS4 version was Rocket League’s number one platform.
This news comes only a few days after Psyonix revealed that Rocket League had surpassed 20 million players. But wait, I know what you’re thinking: if Rocket League has surpassed 20 million players, how has it only sold 7 million? Well the discrepancy comes from two things. One of these is the fact that Rocket League was a free game with plus on PS4 when it launched in July 2015. The other is that splitscreen players (who haven’t purchased the game) are counted as well.
Initially developed on a small budget of $2 million, Rocket League has made bucket loads of money: more than $110 million in revenue from game and DLC sales.
I got Rocket League for free because of PlayStation Plus, but I think I’m going to by a physical edition anyway. Why? Simple: the game is THAT good, and I want to support good games.
