What had you achieved by your second birthday? Rocket League is something of a child prodigy as it celebrates its second birthday it has already mastered walking, talking, and running too.
The Psyonix title has come a long way in a short time and the past six months have seen its esports scene pick up the pace in a big way too. This summer it will have its own televised $100,000 NBC tournament, it’s set to be part of this August’s X-Games which sees airtime on ESPN, the RLCS hit greater heights with its third season and it’s one of three titles that form the Gfinity Elite Series which kicks off this weekend.
Moreover, the Collegiate Rocket League Summer Series is just a few days away, while Season 4 of the Rocket League Championship Series isn’t far off either.
We’re also seeing more and more grassroots tournaments emerge such as those from the Pro Rivalry League and the forthcoming Rocket League World Cup.
To celebrate its birthday, here are some stats to better recognise how far it has come…
Psyonix isn’t finished there either. As for what’s coming next, well there’s plenty. Rocket League is moving to new pastures; Nintendo Switch will soon see its version released, a new upgrade patch for Xbox One X is currently in development, and China can expect a free-to-play Rocket League before the game’s next birthday.
Esports Insider says: We love Rocket League and no-one should be surprised at the title’s growth. The game has a developer that is passionate and listens to its community of fans which is why it keeps getting bigger and better. Who knows which stats we’ll be able to show for its third birthday!
