Game news Rocket League Next: A Reboot In The Boxes Of Epic Games?
The legal battle between Epic Games and Apple, two of the biggest giants in the game industry, is currently raging! But before the end of the story comes from the court, which is usually revealed in less than three weeks, many confidential documents emerge. After excerpts revealing lots of numbers as well as a dark history of crossplay, it’s time to talk about a particular Rocket League restart.
Thanks to these new documents, peeled down to the last detail during testing with Epic Games and Apple, the mobile game Rocket League Sideswipe has come back into the limelight. If we are to believe these documents, this production, first unveiled to the public on March 24th, should be released this summer as an “independent Rocket League experience made specifically for mobile devices”. But if you’ve been following the news for the past few months, it is no longer the case.
Indeed, The same document also mentions a Rocket League “Next” that Epic Games has not yet officially announced. We don’t know if this project is still in the works or if it just relates to the reboot the license took on July 21, 2020 when it was played for free. If we refer to the date of this document published in June 2020, we believe that this is the second option.
Finally, we learn that the title had more than 10 million active users on all gaming platforms combined in June 2020. A record high for the game released in 2015. A score that, as we can imagine, has since exploded. As a reminder, Corey Davis, co-head of the Psyonix studio, announced during his time in free-to-play on Twitter that the Rocket League had exceeded a million concurrent players for the first time.
