Earlier today we reported that Epic Games and Psyonix had revealed a partnership to bring Rocket League to the Epic Games Store, and in the announcement the studio felt the need to clarify whether this affects the esports scene for the game.
"We think this is a great move for the Rocket League Esports ecosystem because it significantly increases our potential reach and resources, just like it does for the game itself," the post reads. "We really do believe that you'll find our future in esports to be very exciting - especially in the near future, where on June 21-23 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) finals will end our 7th season with a bang!"
Rocket League does indeed have a vibrant competitive community, with Renegades recently signing a roster that used to belong to Chiefs, and with the RLCS being a popular competition, it's reassuring for fans to hear that this deal won't disrupt that.
