Despite being launched on Xbox One far after the release of the PlayStation 4 and the PC versions, the Xbox One edition of Rocket League has already brought in a huge number of players. In fact, recently it was confirmed that the game now has over 1,000,000 players.
Psyonix, the developers of Rocket League, recently revealed on Twitter that the Xbox One version has now hit 1 million unique players. It'll be interesting to see how many unique copies have sold on the PlayStation 4 and the PC as well, especially in a similar time frame. Numbers for other platforms are probably as high as you'd expect them to be, but with all of the hype surrounding the Xbox One release, we have a feeling that the new version has sold a lot quicker than previous releases.
The increased sales for Rocket League should hopefully mean two very big things. Firstly, development for Rocket League is going to continue for the foreseeable future, which means new content patches, new cosmetic items, new stadiums and more improvements and optimizations. The second thing is that support for eSports and competitive gaming within Rocket League should be able to grow. This is especially true now that all three current gen platforms support the game.
Have you played Rocket League yet? Chances are you've at least heard about it from somewhere! We think Rocket League is one of the most unique competitive games released in recent years and we only wish the absolute best for it.
