Don’t expect a Rocket League 2 anytime soon, says Psyonix

Rocket League won’t be receiving a sequel as developer Psyonix decides to focus on a “games as a service” model for the original title.

This is no massive surprise when you consider how heavily Rocket League has pushed free events, updates and boatloads of downloadable content since its launch.

Speaking to Gamespot, game director Scott Rudi said “that’s preferable to do; games-as-a-service,” when asked about the future of Rocket League.

“The most valuable thing in our game is our fans. A lot of the stuff we do is focused on keeping them with us. Keeping them interested and all hyped up about our game.

“We want to provide a really good experience [for players] to have fun with for years to come. We want to keep this going”

First launching as a PlayStation Plus title in 2015, Rocket League is close to celebrating its third anniversary, and Psyonix has some exciting things in the works for the milestone. 

The celebration will be ushered in with an in-game event where players can earn 60 unique items from the previously retired ‘Champion Series’ of crates. Expect special flags, hats, and smoke trails. 

Meanwhile, the big summer patch is coming soon. It will bring cross-platform support for friends and parties spanning PS4, PC, Switch and Xbox One.

Rodi concludes his thoughts on the sequel by saying, “I’d rather do more to expand the existing Rocket League. It’s doing great, there is a lot ahead of it. So yeah, we have no plans for Rocket League 2.”

So there we have it, don’t expect a sequel to Rocket League. What are your thoughts on this news? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter @trustedreviews.
