— Rocket League (@RocketLeague) January 11, 2017
Rocket League developer Psyonix went to Twitter to announce that the car soccer game has passed an impressive milestone. As can be seen above, over one billion matches have been played so far. The developer broke it down further stating that here are over 25 million players in total, and that 50% of all matches were played in the game’s competitive mode. The other half of the matches came from the game’s casual (33%), alternative (11%) and private modes. They also revealed that there have been 31 million Rumble matches so far, which adds items into the already chaotic sports game.
Rocket League originally released in July 2015 for PC and PlayStation 4, the latter of which offered the game as a free title for PlayStation Plus subscribers. Since then the game has been ported to Xbox One, OS X and Linux. Psyonix has kept the game alive with regular updates in the year and a half since release, as multiple maps and modes have come out for free. This has ensured that the multiplayer base isn’t split, and that all players can continue to play against each other.
Here’s what PlayStation LifeStyle had to say about the game in our review when it originally released:
Simply put, Rocket League is one of the best titles on PlayStation 4. It manages to flawlessly blend fast-paced racing with a sport that is familiar to millions. The depth is there to keep players coming back for years to come, and Psyonix has done a masterful job in creating one of the best multiplayer experiences yet.
