The five years between Rocket League's launch and today have flown by like they just picked up a corner boost. To say we at Psyonix are thankful for the community's continued support is an understatement. We know Rocket League wouldn't be where it is today without your unparalleled passion for Soccar, and what you've accomplished in-game is simply unbelievable.
In the past five years, Rocket League has gone from two launch platforms to four, and available cars jumped from 10 to over 70. Nearly a dozen new modes have made it into the game, pushing the total number of games played to 5 billion! Rocket Pass is in its sixth iteration. The Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) is approaching its tenth season. Not only that, but the game has seen 14 Competitive Seasons with Rewards, the addition of Item and Esports Shops, cross-platform play, and so many more additional features. To put it in Quick Chat language: Wow!
Even though Rocket League has soared to new heights in 2020, we still think that the best is yet to come. Stay tuned later this summer for more info on the future of the game. In the meantime enjoy the incredible statistics that make up the last five years of Rocket League in the infographic below.
From all of us at Psyonix, thank you for being a part of this amazing journey. Here's to five more years!
