May 1, 2019 Epic has expanded on an earlier statement that implied Rocket League would be removed from sale on Steam.
Earlier today, Epic announced that it had entered into an agreement to purchase Rocket League developer Psyonix, and that the game would be available for purchase on the Epic Games store later this year. The press release implied that Steam sales would be discontinued at that point, but now Epic says it hasn’t actually confirmed whether or not the game will be another exclusive just yet.
“We are continuing to sell Rocket League on Steam, and have not announced plans to stop selling the game there,” an Epic spokesperson tells USgamer. “Rocket League remains available for new purchasers on Steam, and long-term plans will be announced in the future.”
In that, Epic conspicuously does not deny that Rocket League will be removed from sale on Steam, and its original statement casts doubt on the game’s future on Valve’s store. “The PC version of Rocket League will come to the Epic Games store in late 2019. In the meantime, it will continue to be available for purchase on Steam; thereafter it will continue to be supported on Steam for all existing purchasers.”
