Rocket League continues to be the “little indie game that could” going from relative obscurity to one of the biggest titles of the year in 2015. Now the game will make the transition from digital only to a full blown physical disc release according to an announcement made on the Kinda Funny Twitch channel.
While speaking with the developers at Psyonix, the studio behind Rocket League and its predecessor, it was revealed that there would be a physical disc release for the hugely popular sports game. No other info was given, such as release date or price, though it will likely come some time soon and cost the same as the digital version, which usually goes for $20.
Rocket League recently expanded from PS4 and PC to the Xbox One, though the latter does not allow cross-play multiplayer like the first two do. Most likely the retail version of the game will be available on PS4 and Xbox One, though we’ll have to wait for confirmation from Psyonix on that front.
Rocket League just keeps growing in popularity, after recently reaching a new record for number of players online at the same time. Will this retail release help boost those numbers even higher, or has everyone who might want to play the game already bought it digitally? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
