Rocket League: Its developers talk about how difficult it was to give the game away on PlayStation Plus


As we all already know, Rocket League, that game that mixes cars with football that has been a great sensation around the world, is available for free to all those who have PlayStation Plus. Do you wonder how the game developers came to the conclusion that this was the best way to maintain a title for which they had no money to market?

For Psyonix, the study responsible for Rocket League was not at all easy to make the decision to reach an agreement with Sony so that the title would be free on PlayStation Plus, and that is what they have affirmed in a documentary, in which they talk about the difficult decision and everything that made them ultimately take that path as the least damaging of all.

“Our strategy was ‘if we don’t have the money to put this game on the market, why don’t we let Sony do it for us?’” Are the words of Jeremy Dunham, vice president of Psyonix, who says they didn’t have money for it, so they had to do something about a game that they really didn’t have much hope on would last. We continue on the next page.

However, the funny title has managed to gain a foothold, dispelling the doubts of its creators, who were quite pessimistic: “What if five million people download it? and then nobody else buys it and we can’t do anything but pay for servers for five million people?

Then we leave you the two parts of the documentary.
