Rocket League, the ever popular soccer-with-cars game, continues to soar. Developer Psyonix has announced has now reached 14 million players. This doesn’t mean the game has sold that many copies, but whatever the case, 14 million is a pretty huge number and one that Psyonix is thankful for.

“Our gratitude is real. Thank you very much, everyone!” the studio said on Twitter.

This is up from the 12 million the game boasted at the end of February. Also at the time, Psyonix explained that, since the game offers split-screen play, each individual PlayStation Network and Xbox Gamertag is counted. This means the figure includes people who played, but didn’t necessarily buy a copy.

This success will hopefully allow Psyonix to stop doing so much other contract work and invest more in their own franchises, CEO Dave Hagewood recently said. Some of Psyonix’s high-profile contract jobs have included working on the multiplayer modes for Bulletstorm and Mass Effect 3.

“We’re definitely all in on Rocket League, but we have a pretty large team, actually, compared to what it took us to build Rocket League in the first place. It’s more than what we actually need to be all in on Rocket League, to do almost everything we want to do to continue Rocket League. We do want Rocket League to be this base that kind of replaces that contract work revenue that kept us stable for so long.”

 

A physical version of Rocket League for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC is coming this summer. In other news, Goat Simulator items are coming to the game (such as the antenna seen above). Stay Tuned to Gamer Assault Weekly  for all your other gaming needs.

I have worked hard to become the COO here at GAW and I love it. I write and stream here and I couldn't be happier. I once had a show that I produced, wrote, and co-hosted called the Wide World of Games. I also co-host a podcast called Party Up! I'm an Action-Adventurer, platformer, RPGer, and FPS kind of gamer. Quick to play any game that has magic, swordplay, and/or stealthy elements. If you can customize a character I'm in it for the long haul. Or just give me your 2D platform and I'm a happy camper. What else do you expect from a gamer with a beard and a bow tie tattoo? Seriously.
