Rocket League’s Psyonix Has Been Bought By Epic Games

Epic Games has officially taken over Psyonix, the team behind the iconic game, Rocket League.

In an official statement, Psyonix confirmed the news, saying: “Today is a big day for us here at Psyonix because, just as the headline says, we’re officially joining the Epic Games family.

“Your first question to news like this might be, ‘What does this mean for Rocket League and its community?’

“We’re happy to say that the answers are only positive. Rocket League always has been and always will be a community-driven game, and now that we have joined forces with Epic, we will be able to serve our community in even bigger and better ways!”

The controversial Epic Store doesn’t have too many fans with PC players after nabbing itself a tonne of exciting exclusives that left Steam users pretty p*ssed.

Over on Reddit, a thread with questions for Psyonix has started, but at the time of writing its many queries are yet to be answered.

PC players are desperate to know what will happen with DLC for Rocket League players on Steam, whether mods will work and whether Steam custom maps will still be available.

All we know for sure right now is that the game will still be available on Steam – for now.

“Rocket League is and remains available on Steam. Anyone who owns Rocket League through Steam can still play it and can look forward to continued support,” says an editor’s note on the statement.

Naturally, people aren’t best pleased with the news, as the Epic Store is controversial to say the least.

Despite offering users two new free games per month, and despite having a slew of exclusives including Metro Exodus and the upcoming Borderlands 3, the Epic Store has been accused of being unsafe to use in terms of its security.

However, with more and more companies turning to Epic Game for their launches, it seems like the Epic Store is here to stay.
