Rocket League hits 75m players after five years

Psyonix's chaotic car football title Rocket League has been played by more than 75m players since its launch back in 2015.

In an infographic posted on the game's website, the developer revealed that five billion matches had been played and 29 billion goals had been scored.

Since September 2018, Rocket League has attracted 25m players.

Developer Psyonix was bought by Fortnite maker Epic Games in 2019. Last year the studio removed randomised loot boxes and reduced the cost of blueprints within the game.

"n the past five years, Rocket League has gone from two launch platforms to four, and available cars jumped from 10 to over 70," the studio wrote.

"Nearly a dozen new modes have made it into the game, pushing the total number of games played to five billion! Rocket Pass is in its sixth iteration. The Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) is approaching its tenth season. Not only that, but the game has seen 14 Competitive Seasons with Rewards, the addition of Item and Esports Shops, cross-platform play, and so many more additional features. To put it in Quick Chat language: Wow!"
