Don’t fix it if it isn’t broken.

Rocket League, a game about tiny cars pushing an oversized soccer ball into a net, has seen quite a bit of success since its official release a few years ago. With special events, new cosmetic items, free updates, and a committed player base surrounding its fun as heck gameplay, Rocket League has over 29 million registered players.

However, on the topic of making a sequel, developer Psyonix has stated that they’re hesitant to do anything of the sort. Speaking with Kinda Funny Games, Vice President Jeremy Dunham mentioned that they didn’t want to split their player base by releasing a sequel and making the first game feel irrelevant.

“Why would we want to take this huge community that we’ve already built, that’s still growing, and say, ‘What you’re playing now is going to be irrelevant in 12 months?’ Our goal was to keep making Rocket League better and better so that we don’t lose any of the people that want to play.”

Rocket League is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
