More than two million people have played EA's Knockout City

Over two million people have played Electronic Arts' newly-launched Knockout City.

That's according to the game's official Twitter account, which revealed this milestone on May 24th, just three days after its May 21st launch. The game is cross-play and is going to be free-to-play until May 31st.

Knockout City is a dodgeball-inspired game made by Velan Studios that was revealed in February this year. That's a venture set up by veterans of Vicarious Visions, Guha and Karthik Bala, back in 2016. The developer partnered with Electronic Arts in 2019 to launch a game.

“Exploring the boundaries of play with new technology and play patterns is what makes us tick,” Karthik Bala said at the time.

“Our plan was always simple: build an awesome team, find the magic in something new that the team was passionate about and then enable their success. We are looking forward to introducing their vision and evolving it along with players for many years to come.”
