Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Psyonix announced today that they will be bringing an “updated” version of the soccer-esque arcade game Rocket League to the world of retail, with a worldwide distribution agreement being reached to bring the game to stores by Christmas 2017. The game is already available digitally on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, but will be getting a physical retail version as well.
“Rocket League has such wide appeal across all audiences, it’s no wonder the game is such a huge success,” said Kevin Kebodeaux, Senior Vice President, Sales, Americas, Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment. “We’re very excited to be working with Psyonix to bring the game to retailers across the globe.”
“Warner Bros. has already proven to be a great partner,” said Jeremy Dunham, Vice President, Publishing at Psyonix. “We first collaborated on Batman v Superman DLC for Rocket League in early 2016 and we have continued to be impressed with the team’s knowledge, professionalism, reach and enthusiasm for video games. They are the ideal partner to help us push Rocket League to another level at retail.”
Unfortunately for us, no information on the pricing or an exact date (beyond the general release information) has been confirmed, but Psyonix promises those to come “at a later time.” Make sure to stay tuned for any updates.
