Psyonix will be celebrating Christmas with a three bird roast and those cool crackers that have gags inside them, because Rocket League's success has earned the indie outfit a whopping $50 million since launching in July. According to a Wall Street Journal report, the game only cost around $2 million to make, so the studio's basically rich right now. Wow! OMG! Wow!
The game was given away for free with PlayStation Plus, of course, but Sony pays each developer an undisclosed fee for every download. You could argue that the release wouldn't have found its fanbase without the giveaway, though, so it's unlikely that the studio regrets the decision. And with an Xbox One version and plenty more DLC on the way, it's probably going to milk this cow until it's dry.
In fact, the studio does say that it's looking into more collaborations like the Back to the Future DeLorean car – Knight Rider's Kitt next, please! Fair play to the developer, though – the game is legitimately great, and it deserves all of the success in the world. Are you still bouncing balls into your opposition's goal, or has the novelty worn off a little now? Boost jump into the comments section below.
Great game one that surpised me this year. Glad it was on PS Plus as I would never have bought it. Not played it in a long time though. Glad that they made some good money from it
Yeah I rarely buy DLC but I have purchased most of the Rocket League packs in support of how truly fantastic it is.
Is it time for the push square rocket league.... League?
Only DL it because it was on PS+
Loved it! Have bought all the DLC to support Psyonix
glad to hear it. This game scratched an itch I didn't even know I had.
Fantastic game! A good example of when a game is done right; DLC support is not viewed in a negative light. Will gladly support Psyonix in the future.
There are years I don't make that much... Well done chaps!
Like everyone else here I don't mind buying the DLC for Rocket League the studio actually deserves every penny of it IMO. This and Diablo III are my go to games this gen.
I am also really enjoying the hockey version as well.
transformers car packs pls!
@Tasuki WUt, there's a hockey version?
