Rocket League has almost 9 million players across PS4 & PC

Starting off as a Playstation Plus freebie, Rocket League has grown into one of 2015’s most popular releases.

The title hit 8 million players last month, and is already nearing the 9 million milestone across PS4 and PC.

Writing on Playstation Blog, developer Psyonix has “a number of exciting announcements” planned for Rocket League in the coming months.

“As always, we will continue to support the game as aggressively as we can, with new content, new modes, new DLC, new Arenas, and plenty of other cool things to keep you coming back and happy in 2016,” marketing director Jeremy Dunham said.

“Of course, nothing we accomplished this year (or plan to do for the next) would have been possible without you, our dedicated community,” it added. “You helped us reach our dreams with Rocket League, and now we hope to inspire yours for many years to come.”

Psyonix has frequently updated Rocket League with free and paid content since release, keeping the community engaged with new events, modes and customization options.

Rocket League is coming to Xbox One in 2016, complete with exclusive Halo and Gears of War vehicles.

Developed on a small budget of $2 million, Rocket League has generated $50 million or so in profit, according to the Wall Street Journal.
