What does this mean for the Rocket League esports ecosystem?
“We think this is a great move for the Rocket League Esports ecosystem because it significantly increases our potential reach and resources, just like it does for the game itself. We really do believe that you’ll find our future in esports to be very exciting — especially in the near future, where on June 21-23 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) finals will end our 7th season with a bang!”
Despite the acquisition, the Psyonix team assures us that “we are the same team that we’ve always been, only now, we have the power and experience of Epic Games behind us!” As long as the integrity of the game remains the same, this can only mean good things for Rocket League.
