Psyonix's addictive car-football title Rocket League has been a run-away success story since its launch back in July 2015, and has amassed sales of over 10 million copies with close to 29 million registered players.

Psyonix Studios' vice president Jeremy Dunham revealed to Kinda Funny Games (as seen in the video below) that because of the title's incredible growth the development team are not going to create a sequel anytime soon.

"Right now we don't have a cut-off point for the game. Why would we want to take this huge community that we've already built, that's still growing, and just say, 'What you're playing now is going to be irrelevant in 12 months, but we want you to stop what you're doing, give us money all over again, and move over to this other game,' that's not the right way to do things" stated Dunham.

Rocket League to this day, some 18 months after first launching, still boasts phenomenal numbers with almost a quarter of the 29 million registered players playing in February (me included).

Dunham makes it clear that Psyonix are dedicated to Rocket League for the foreseeable future: "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. We want to let them know we're in it for the long haul, if they're in it for the long haul, and that's our whole approach for the game"

Indeed Dunham mentioned new features for Rocket League that are quite possibly a year or two away from fruition, and that's not because they want to stagger content either, rather they have an extensive backlog for upcoming cool features. So it's safe to say that we'll be enjoying the game for a least a few years before murmurings of Rocket League 2 start to get louder.
