Rocket League Scores 25 Million Registered Players
Rocket League is a rags-to-riches success indie story, and can now proclaim 25 million registered players. No, they're not all active but they have all slammed their RC cars into a ballooned up ball more than once. I don't think Psyonix expected such monumental success for their sequel to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars but they deserve it.
But not entirely surprising. Rocket League is a simple game to understand, extremely difficult to master, and brimming with zany and hilarious moments—except for the ones where I whiff the ball and it explodes in my goal. Ouch. And it's a fun game to watch pros play. They make you scratch your head and go, "how did they do that?"
What this story say is Rocket League will be around for a long time.
