Rocket League Developer Psyonix Acquired by Epic Games

By Rebecca Smith, 4 months ago
At a time when a lot of companies have been announcing their financial results, it isn't terribly unusual to hear about studio acquisitions at the same time. However, one of the more surprising studio acquisitions has seen Rocket League developer Psyonix prepare to join Epic Games as one of their studios, a deal that's expected to be complete by the end of the month.

Psyonix & Epic Games

In terms of the console version of Rocket League, nothing is expected to change. There will still be game updates and new content. They also believe it will help strengthen the game's position in the eSports community because it "significantly increases our potential reach and resources".

For players on Steam, the acquisition leaves more uncertainty. Both Psyonix and Epic Games have promised that the game would remain available on Steam and will continue to receive support, but Epic has since released a statement stating its long-term future is yet to be decided. After all, the main point of the acquisition was to bring the game to the Epic Games store later this year.

The studio takeover is expected to be completed towards the end of May or the beginning of June.
