Psyonix, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment team up for updated Rocket League retail release


Being fans of Psyonix’s original Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars for the PS3 we’re always very happy seeing how successful that Rocket League has become. While it is has already been available at retail as a Collector’s Edition published by 505 Games, the company is now teaming up with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to publish an updated retail version which will be made available worldwide later this year.

The updated retail version will hit the PS4 and Xbox One and will apparently feature some new content which will be announced at a later time. We’re not sure where 505 Games fits in with these new plans, but it looks like it’ll be all Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment moving forward.

Read on for the announcement.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and independent video game developer and publisher, Psyonix, today announced a worldwide retail distribution agreement for the critically acclaimed international hit video game Rocket League. The game is already available digitally on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and PC, and the updated retail version will be available for purchase in stores on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One. Details regarding the content in the updated retail version will be confirmed at a later time.

“Rocket League has such wide appeal across all audiences, it’s no wonder the game is such a huge success,” said Kevin Kebodeaux, Senior Vice President, Sales, Americas, Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment. “We’re very excited to be working with Psyonix to bring the game to retailers across the globe.”

“Warner Bros. has already proven to be a great partner,” said Jeremy Dunham, Vice President, Publishing at Psyonix. “We first collaborated on Batman v Superman DLC for Rocket League in early 2016 and we have continued to be impressed with the team’s knowledge, professionalism, reach and enthusiasm for video games. They are the ideal partner to help us push Rocket League to another level at retail.”
