Rocket League Turns One, Sales Hit 6.2M Units Worldwide - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 10 July 2016 / 6,180 Views
Developer Psyonix is celebrating the one year anniversary of Rocket League. The game released on July 7, 2015 in North America and Europe.
To celebrate the anniversary, Psyonix has released an infographic. More than 18 million people have played the game and it has sold 6.2 million units worldwide. 5.5 million units of DLC have been sold and it averages 1.1 million players per day.
"Exactly one year ago today, Rocket League launched in Europe and North America and it changed our lives forever," reads a post from developer Psyonix.
"Because of your passion and your support, our relatively-small follow-up to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars has exceeded our wildest dreams and become something enormous. You have made new friends, crossed platforms into new frontiers, and inspired us in ways you’ll never know (and in other ways you’ll know very soon). You’ve made incredible saves, scored amazing goals, and you’ve changed the conversation in the world of competitive esports forever.
"We debated for quite some time what the best way to show you our gratitude was, until we realized that the answer was to keep doing what you want us to do – to keep supporting the game with new Arenas, new Garage items, new Game Modes, and new DLC; to experiment with more Rocket Labs and to increase our presence in the world of competitive gaming.
"And so that’s exactly what we’re going to do. We’re going to make our next 52 weeks even better than our first. We’re going to give you all the things we mentioned above and then we’re going to give you some more, because you deserve it. You’re our community and you’re our friends."
