Epic Games is acquiring Rocket League developer Psyonix


Jason Clement

It seems Epic Games is on a warpath to dominate the video game market these days, from their recent inroads with the Epic Game Store and acquiring exclusive rights to game debuts to riding high with Fortnite -- currently the most popular game in the world.

 

Now it has been announced that the publisher is acquiring Rocket League developer, Psyonix.

 

The transaction was discussed in a new post on Psyonix's website today and revealed that nothing is changing for Rocket League due to the acquisition. Not much was revealed about what this means for the developer other than expanded resources and reach for their popular eSports title, but Psyonix does state that the game will be heading to the Epic Games Store in the long run. According to The Verge, Rocket League will no longer be available on Steam after that point.

 

As for the acquisition itself, Psyonix and Epic Games expect the transaction to close around the end of May to early June 2019.
