Yesterday the surprise jumped. Epic Games signed the creators of Rocket League, and made one of the most controversial moves of which we have this year in the video game industry. One that, apparently, will end up at the exit of the game from the Steam store, at least that is what was deduced from a second statement issued yesterday.
At first it was not commented that when it became official the purchase, and it was not until a new announcement published minutes later when it was explained that the game “will be available to buy on Steam until the game arrives at Epic Games Store “, and asked what would happen later this year. they were limited to ensuring that ” Afterwards they will continue to maintain their support for existing buyers ”
With that text it seemed logical to ensure that the video game would not be longer on Steam thereafter. However, now the USGamer portal claims to have received a new announcement from Epic, the third in reference to the Rocket League in less than 24 hours, in which the news is very much clarified.
” We’re going to continue selling Rocket League on Steam, and no plans have been announced to stop selling the game at that store, “a company spokesman said.” Rocket League is still available for new consumers on Steam, and long- Term plans with the game will be announced in the future ”
What are those plans? Difficult to know, and could be a strategy to control the hard reaction of the community to the last night. But what they are very clear about is to ensure that the rights of Steam title buyers will continue to be maintained in the future. & Quot; All those who bought Rocket League on that platform will be able to continue playing it with all its content, just like always “.
