Rocket League Will Get an Updated Retail Release Thanks to New Warner Bros. Interactive Partnership

Psyonix is partnering with Warner Bros. for future physical releases.

Warner Bros. Interactive has reached a deal with Rocket League developer Psyonix to become the primary physical retail distributor for Rocket League. Warner Bros. Interactive will replace Rocket League's previous retail distributor, 505 Games.

As a result of the new partnership, an updated retail version for Rocket League has been announced. There's no word yet on what kind of content will be included in the new release, but I wouldn't be surprised if it involves WB's big properties like DC Comics and Lord of the Rings.

"We first collaborated on Batman v Superman DLC for Rocket League in early 2016 and we have continued to be impressed with the team's knowledge, professionalism, reach and enthusiasm for video games," said Psyonix's VP of publishing, Jeremy Dunham, in a statement.

Originally, Rocket League launched digitally back in 2015. However, the first physical retail launch happened a year later in 2016 with the help of 505 Games. The original retail version of Rocket League went on to sell over 1 million copies.

Based on a statement by Warner Bros. Interactive senior vice president, Kevin Kebodeaux, the new partnership aims to bring Rocket League to an even larger audience "across the globe."
