Fortnite studio Epic Games has acquired Psyonix, the developer behind the critically acclaimed vehicular footie title Rocket League. 

Those of you worried about what impact this will have on the future of Rocket League needn't sweat. Psyonix has confirmed that it's still committed to supporting the game, so nothing will change in that respect.

'Rocket League always has been and always will be a community-driven game, and now that we have joined forces with Epic, we will be able to serve our community in even bigger and better ways,' said the company.

'In the short term, nothing will change at all! We’re still committed to providing Rocket League with frequent updates that have new features, new content, and new ways to play the game for as long as you’ll have us.'

Rocket League will also head to the Epic Games store at some point in the future, the blurb added.

Rocket League launched in 2015 on PC and PlayStation 4, before arriving on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in February 2016 and November 2017, respectively.
