More than three years after its initial release, Rocket League continues to pick up steam. Developer Psyonix revealed yesterday that Rocket League has now surpassed 50 million total players.
“Rocket League now has more than 50 MILLION players worldwide!” tweeted Psyonix. “Thank you to our ever-growing global community for helping us reach this incredible milestone.”
The top fan reply to the tweet is a request for cross-platform party functionality. It’s a feature Psyonix originally promised would be available this month, but last week delayed indefinitely to ensure it operates “flawlessly on all platforms before its release.”
But it’s not as though Rocket League has been hurting for new content and features. Psyonix released the new Rocket Pass progression system on Sept. 5, which was just one component of the largest changes Psyonix has yet brought to Rocket League.
And sticking with the number 50, Psyonix announced earlier this week that it would celebrate the 50th anniversary of Hot Wheels on Sept. 24 by releasing the Triple Threat DLC pack. The pack includes three new Hot Wheels-themed cars along with decals, wheels, and creature toppers to go with them.
