On July 7th last year, Rocket League released to the masses via PlayStation Plus on the PS4 and Steam. Since then, it has taken the world of gaming and esports by storm. To this day, it has been played by millions, and features on many gamers’ daily diet of online gaming.
Psyonix, Rocket League’s developer posted a blog post to celebrate the one year anniversary of the game, along with a chart full of statistics for you to oogle if you wish. In the blog post, Psyonix said,
“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.”
