When Rocket League debuted in July of 2015, it was made abundantly clear that it was no ordinary game. Hundreds of thousands of players quickly jumped online in a way that no indie game before it had ever seen. Developer Psyonix was elated and under pressure.
Since then, Rocket League's success has been well-televised, supported by regular announcements for post-launch content. Its eSports presence is something few initially expected, and its player retention admirable. Today, it has reached a milestone worth talking about.
Rocket League now sits comfortably at over 10.5 million units sold worldwide, with a whopping 29 million registered players across all platforms. This makes it one of the best-selling titles of all-time, standing next to greats such as Super Mario 64, Final Fantasy VII, Halo 4, and Wii Party.
Psyonix recently released Hot Wheels branded content to the game as part of a partnership with Mattel.
