Epic Games has been making statements in the PC space everywhere you look, signing exclusivity deals for their store since revealing it, and now Psyonix has announced that they're also "joining the Epic Games family", which of course means Rocket League is coming to the Epic Games Store.

Psyonix says nothing will change in the short term regarding updates, features, and content, but they plan "to leverage our new relationship to grow the game in ways we couldn't do on our own before." The development team will stay the same too.

What about Steam? Well, Psyonix felt the need to clarify this after the announcement, saying that "Rocket League is and remains available on Steam. Anyone who owns Rocket League through Steam can still play it and can look forward to continued support."

To offer further clarification after fans believed that it will be taken off of Steam at some point, an Epic spokesperson providing the following message to USgamer:

"We are continuing to sell Rocket League on Steam, and have not announced plans to stop selling the game there. Rocket League remains available for new purchasers on Steam, and long-term plans will be announced in the future."

The deal still remains subject to closing conditions, but is due to be finalised by the end of the month or early June.

What do you make of this partnership?
