Can Rocket League Continue to Thrive Into the Fall and Beyond?

"If there's been one winner in gaming this summer, it's been Rocket League. Psyonix's "SocCar" racing/soccer hybrid has ridden an empty release window, wide availability, and positive press to become the surprise hit of the summer. The question now is whether it has legitimate staying power, or if it's a fad that will fade as meatier games start dropping in August."

The story is too old to be commented.

Probably not. Too many great games coming out. Of course some people will still play and it will have a community but no game is as big as when it comes out initially.

Rocket League definitely helped with any kind of drought they may have occurred during mid summer

I agree. I love Rocket League, but am already starting to get bored of it.

Actually I have like 700 goals scored and a ton of games played in just under a month. But its just not as fun as it was the first couple weeks.

I'm really just messin with you.

I still play it daily and think of it while not playing it.

It's probably already developed a healthy community, so yes. There isn't a game coming out like it and in terms of sports games, this is the first good one. Personally I can easily go back to it. It's quick like Splatoon where I can turn it on and do a quick match then go. That's whats going to keep it going and I'm guessing they already have new content in development which will help keep the pulse going.

i can see this game being played for a while. the game regularly has around 90,000 people playing at a time and even games like COD and BF struggle to even get half that after their peak.

I would love a multiplayer death match DLC. It already has sweet tooth!

I think I will still be playing. It is the most fun I have had with friends this year. And I don't see it stopping
