It appears that Rocket League will be Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Car-ing away from Steam and into the Epic Games Store.
In a surprising turn of events, Rocket League developer Pysonix will be abandoning Steam after a surprising buyout from Epic Games.
While the Steam version will still receive updates for the hundreds of thousands of players on Valve’s platform, it will no longer be available to buy on the service after late 2019. It’s unknown whether or not paid DLC will still be available on Steam, but at least content updates will be.
“Today is a big day for us here at Psyonix because, just as the headline says, we’re officially joining the Epic Games family,” the team wrote on their official blog.
“In the short term, nothing will change at all! We’re still committed to providing Rocket League with frequent updates that have new features, new content and new ways to play the game for as long as you’ll have us.
In the long-term, we expect to bring Rocket League to the Epic Games store and leverage our new relationship to grow the game in ways we couldn’t do on our own before. We believe that bringing Rocket League to new audiences with more support is a win for everybody.”
Rocket League is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
