Rockets League - Epic Games buys Psyonix, games are removed fro

  • Epic Games announced the acquisition of American studio Psyonix. The developer is known for its "Rocket League". As part of Steam, sales of the game will stop.

    A loud noise in the indie game: Epic Games announced plans to acquire the Psyonix development studio. According to the two companies, the deal should be completed by the end of June 2019.

    It is said that Psyonix, known for its popular Rocket League, will have offices in San Diego and all its employees. Players should not experience any changes in the short term, but they should change a lot in the coming months. Even then I think Rocket League Keys, Rocket League Crates and Rocket League Items should not have a big impact on players.

    By the end of this year, the "Rocket League" will be released on the Epic Games Store. Then stop selling the game on Steam, then all new buyers must visit the version in the Epic Games Store. Psyonix is ​​committed to continuing to release future updates for all buyers of the Steam version. After all, everything else is very unwise, with up to 60,000 players who are participating in the most popular Steam games.

    As part of the acquisition, in addition to this, the resources of the "Rocket League" official e-sports competition will increase. This season will end in June and the tournament will be held at the Prudential Center in New Jersey. Although it is the end of the season, the player's passion for the game is still unabated, as can be seen from the sales of the Rocket League Keys. I hope that after the acquisition, it can still be like this.

    Since the establishment of Psyonix, the studio has been working closely with Epic Games, so the acquisition of one or the other should not be too surprising. Therefore, the studio participated in the Unreal Tournament and the War Machine, and helped develop.

    Even though the "Rocket League" can work together, this is why the game relies especially on the Unreal Engine.
