Rocket League Sells 7 Million Copies, Up 2 Million Since June
7 million and counting.
Rocket League continues to sell. More than a year after the soccer-with-cars game zoomed onto the scene in July 2015, the game has now sold 7 million copies.
This figure, which is up from 5 million in June, includes copies sold across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, a representative for Psyonix told GameSpot. A sales breakdown by system was not provided, but Psyonix had previously said the PS4 version was Rocket League's No. 1 platform.
The confirmation of the sales figure comes after Psyonix announced that Rocket League had passed 20 million players. The discrepancy between player figures and sales comes down to a number of factors.
One of these is the fact that Rocket League was free on PS4 when it launched in July 2015 for PlayStation Plus subscribers. Additionally, the game supports splitscreen--individual users are counted towards the figure, including those who did not buy the game. Still, 20 million is an impressive figure, and this is up as well, as there were 19 million players as of July 20.
Initially developed on a budget of only $2 million, Rocket League has now brought in more than $110 million in revenue from game and DLC sales.
Psyonix has continually supported Rocket League with new content and in September, players are getting the awesome-sounding Rumble mode.
