6m sales of Rocket League proves there's an audience for new ideas, says developer Psyonix

Forget Batman and Metal Gear Solid V, Rocket League has come out of nowhere to become the biggest game of the summer.

The PC and PSN digital game has been played by 6m people, developer Psyonix has announced. The car-football title was released as part of the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection for PS4 and via Steam in July.

Speaking to MCV, VP of marketing and communications Jeremy Dunham said that the firm is sharing sales figures so that other studios realise the power of unique ideas, and urges other companies to share digital data, too.

isn't Rocket League a remake?

It's a current gen successor to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars.

What's your point?

@ Tiqila

I bought it in a sale for PS3 but never really gave it a proper chance.
I used to hate how loud the music was in the XMB when I scrolled down my list games.

suuuuuper soooonic... acrobaticrocketpoweredBATTLECA RS!!

His point is that in the title it says there "is an audience for new ideas". How new an idea is it when its a sequel?

The game is great, the "new idea" angle is questionable.

"How new an idea is it when its a sequel?"

A sequel to their original idea though.
An idea that hasn't been copied by others... yet.

What makes you think it's a remake?

Serious question.

B cause there was a game on PS3 like it

they need to add some challenges, daily challenges, xp boosts, more items because the game got dull. Something I noticed is that the player count dropped after the football games released...
