Epic Games which is widely known for creating Fortnite has acquired Psyonix, the San-Diego based development studio behind the successful one-of-a-kind vehicular soccer video game “Rocket League” yesterday.
Following the acquisition, Epic stated in their initial official press release that “The PC version of Rocket League will come to the Epic Games store in late 2019. In the meantime, it will continue to be available for purchase on Steam; thereafter it will continue to be supported on Steam for all existing purchasers.”
From the statement, one can easily make of that Epic Games plans on removing Rocket League from Steam once the game successfully shifted to their store with the wording of “In the meantime” and “thereafter”.
However, in a new statement issued to US Gamer, Epic Games and Psyonix have clarified that: “We are continuing to sell Rocket League on Steam, and have not announced plans to stop selling the game there.” and “Rocket League remains available for new purchasers on Steam, and long-term plans will be announced in the future.”
Although is safe to say that Rocket League is not going anywhere away from Steam at the moment, there’s still the whole “in the future” plan that determines whether Rocket League stays in Steam or not. So, you might want to take all this in with a pinch of salt and hope for the best outcome there is. Let us know what you think about this down the comments!
