Rocket League Has Made Close To $50 Million Since July Launch

by Mike Guarino


Rocket League has been this year’s biggest surprise hit, with word on the game spreading like wildfire when it released for free for PlayStation Plus subscribers this Summer. Now a new article from The Wall Street Journal is letting us know just how much of a hit it has been, as developer Psyonix has revealed that it has made around $50 million since it launched in July.

$50 million is a lot of money no matter how you look at it, but what makes this number even more eye-opening is the fact that it’s reported that Rocket League was made for just under $2 million. It’s also surprising that the game did so well considering that it is a sequel to the little-played Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars. That game originally launched in 2008 for PlayStation 3, generating mixed reviews from critics and disappointing sales.

Rocket League is currently available to download for both PlayStation 4 and PC for $19.99, though it will also be making its debut for the Xbox One in February 2016. A new Snow Day update recently went live for the game that adds Christmas-themed cosmetics, as well as ice-themed arenas and a giant puck instead of a ball.
