The creators of Fortnite have acquired Psyonix which has created the beloved Rocket League game, as Epic Game has started adding titles to their own store. Steam has been losing the lions share in PC gaming.
A lot of games have shifted from Steam to Epic and it looks like Rocket League might follow soon in similar footsteps. A largely popular game in which you play soccer with a rocket-powered car. The game became a fan favorite over social media and online tournaments over the world.
The terms at which Epic has taken over Psyonix haven’t been released but neither have Epic released a statement whether they will pull the game from Steam. Instead, they had this to say.
“The PC version of Rocket League will come to the Epic Games store in late 2019. In the meantime, it will continue to be available for purchase on Steam; thereafter it will continue to be supported on Steam for all existing purchasers.”
This shows a long term plan which might bring Rocket League to the Epic Store exclusively but this is still far in the future.
Dave Hagewood, Psyonix founder and studio director, said
“The potential of what we can learn from each other and accomplish together makes us truly excited for the future.”
It is not yet clear yet what new changes will be forthcoming to Rocket League but it sure will be interesting to see.
Rocket League is available for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
