Rocket League has reached 40 million players worldwide, developer Psyonix has announced.
The announcement was made via the games official Twitter account a couple of days ago with Rocket League believed to have picked up 500,000 new players in the second half of 2017 alone. In November 2017, Psyonix completed the platform version of monopoly with Panic Room porting the hugely popular sports game to Nintendo Switch to go with earlier releases on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
2017 was also the year that Rocket League came to retail, thanks to a publishing deal with Warner Bros.

Rocket League‘s popularity doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon, which is good because Psyonix is likely to deliver details on what to expect in Season 7 later this month.
