‘Rocket League’ Sales Pass $110 Million

Forbes reports that car soccer phenomenon  Rocket League has surpassed $110 million in sales across all three platforms. This figure includes purchases of the game and downloadable content (DLC).

In the interview with Forbes, Psyonix vice president Jeremy Dunham revealed a few statistics about Rocket League and its player base. Firstly, over 5 million units of DLC have been sold across all three platforms. These have been in the form of additional vehicles or flags for existing vehicles, such as the NBA flag pack that was released with the recent Hoops update for $1.99.

Next, since July 2015, over 15 million people have played Rocket League, and there were over 5 million active players in April of this year. It appears that this year alone, Rocket League‘s player base has nearly doubled. Last December the game had 8 million players.

Finally, the PlayStation 4 has the most active players, with 42% of the total active player base. The PC comes in second with 36% and is also the top-selling platform for the game, largely because the game was released as a free download for PlayStation Plus members on PlayStation 4 when it released, and the Xbox One version was only released this year. The Xbox One has 22% of active players.

Despite the lower player base, Xbox One players can still play with over 50% of the active player base thanks to the recently implemented cross-network play between the console and PC.
