Epic Games (the studio behind the iconic battle royale game Fortnite) has bought and acquired Psyonix (the studio behind the popular car-football game Rocket League).

The move comes at an interesting time for geek culture, where it's becoming quite common to see massive companies being mashed together (see: the Disney-Fox merger, which has now gone through), whilst it's also becoming increasingly common for companies to seek a bit more of your cash (see: the rise of microtransactions, and the maddening amount of new TV streaming services that are on the way).

It's also an interesting time for the economy around video game purchases, with Epic's own store setting itself up as a major competitor to the longtime favourite, Steam. It's not rare anymore for a major game's PC launch to bypass Steam in favour of being an Epic Store exclusive, mainly because Epic gives developers a greater cut of the revenue than Steam.

Anyway, back to the point. Given that both Fortnite and Rocket League are hugely beloved online games, which attract casual gamers and hard-core fans alike, Epic's decision to buy Psyonix does make a lot of sense.

"Today is a big day for us here at Psyonix because, just as the headline says, we’re officially joining the Epic Games family," reads an official announcement on the Rocket League website.

Psyonix also hopes "to leverage our new relationship to grow the game in ways we couldn’t do on our own before. We believe that bringing Rocket League to new audiences with more support is a win for everybody."

Epic has released its own statement, via US Gamer, offering this update on which PC platforms Rocket League will be available on: "The PC version of Rocket League will come to the Epic Games store in late 2019. In the meantime, it will continue to be available for purchase on Steam; thereafter it will continue to be supported on Steam for all existing purchasers."
