Rocket League is one of the most successful indie games ever made, and has become an engagement juggernaut for eSports while rocketing developer Psyonix to the big leagues (puns!). Now the game is coming to retail markets on PS4 and Xbox One thanks to a joint partnership with Warner Bros.

 

"The game is already available digitally on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, and the updated retail version will be available for purchase in stores on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One," reads the official press release.

 

"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."

As of July 2017, Rocket League enjoys a huge 1.6 million average daily players (DAU) and a titanic 6.1 million monthly active players (MAUs), numbers that are highly coveted by big-name publishers let alone an indie studio.

 

Psyonix also plans to release Rocket League on the Nintendo Switch, however WB will only publish retail copies on PS4 and Xbox One.
