Rocket League has hit another major milestone, reaching 40 million players across PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
Developer Psyonix announced the news on Twitter, with the game now having gained two million more players in just a few weeks. Rocket League hit 38 million registered players earlier in December.

This increase in players is partly due to Rocket League's Nintendo Switch release. Psyonix promises more information on Season 7 will be shared sometime later this month.
Some of the updates players can expect from Rocket League this year include improved server performance, in-game tournaments, a revamped progression system, inventory and quality-of-life improvements, and new collectibles such as banners, titles, and achievements.
