Rocket League 2 isn’t happening; updates scheduled for years
In the two years Rocket League has been around, it’s gathered over 33 million registered players. Psyonix hasn’t forgotten the game they envisioned.
Psyonix VP of publishing Jeremy Dunham said that Rocket League is “still the same game” in a recent interview with GamesIndustry. There’s no room for spin-offs or sequels.
“We don’t want to exploit the brand. We want to reward the players, that’s how we look at it,” Dunham stated. “Our vantage point is that if we are going to make a new game, then it needs to be a new game, we want it to be its own thing that’s built on its own merit and its own expectations. It will have its own team, its own philosophies and it will be a separate thing.”
Psyonix isn’t back twiddling their thumbs and raking in the cash, though. They’re still working on things for Rocket League.
“We do have a team internally that is dedicated to coming up with new game ideas. We have several game ideas that live and die in a few weeks, and others that last even longer and we are exploring.”
It’s nice to see Psyonix still considers Rocket League a “passion project.” Read the full interview here.
