Rocket League is really popular. Hope you got on board before it was fashionable.
Rocket League has been downloaded over 5 million times since its July 7 launch, developer Psyonix has announced.
That’s more than twice the amount of potential players than precursor Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, Psyonix told Polygon.
The impressive figure was likely helped along by Rocket League’s inclusion in Sony’s PlayStation Plus scheme, especially as the number of downloads has grown from 4 million to 5 million in the last week. Presumably PS Plus members have rushed to take advantage of a free copy before the July offers are withdrawn.
