Psyonix has announced that starting with its next major update for Rocket League, the studio will begin retiring some of its Crates and that going forward, it’ll be retiring them “roughly six months” after initial release.
This is being done to make room for newer Crates and to increase the frequency of them dropping post match. The first four Crates to go will be the Champion series.
Over on its website, Psyonix wrote:
This retirement ONLY affects drops, so if you already have Champion Crates in your inventory, or want to trade Champion Crates to other players after their retirement, you will still be able to do so.
Items found inside retired Crates could still come back at a later date. Some items are already available in other Crates, like those found in the Player’s Choice Crate we released in February.
Future Crates will be announced prior to their release on Rocket League‘s website and details of the game’s next update, which is due out in the summer, will be available in due course.
