    Default Rocket League film and TV series being discussed

    A movie or TV series based on Psyonix’s car football title Rocket League could well be on the way.

    The firm’s VP of marketing and communications Jeremy Dunham told MCV that Psyonix has been approached by a number of companies and individuals to discuss the possibility of there being a Rocket League film and television show.

    Furthermore, toys based on the title are also being talked about.

    Rocket League launched on PS4 and PC in July of this year, and hit five million downloads by the end of the month. In August, it was revealed that the title had reached one million sales on Steam.

    Meanwhile, the game has become a darling with the Twitch community, becoming the fifth-most watched game on the streaming platform during July.

    “We've had discussions with various people and studios in Hollywood about making movies based on Rocket League, or a TV show,” Dunham said.

    “We've had people come our way with possible toy deals and lots of cross-promotions outside of our game, some of which we have already done. Now we are getting to the point where the people who want to work with us are much much more famous. It's crazy. The meetings that I have with new companies who I didn't realise were Rocket League players – it blows my mind. They're still playing the game and are still interested in it. It makes us almost speechless, we're wondering when it's going to end.

    He continued: “TV series and films are being pitched to us. There's nothing to announce, there's nothing official, we haven't signed any dotted lines. A big reason for that is there are lot of questions about Rocket League in general, about the fiction, the lore and how that would tie in to a television show or film.

    “There are many studios, agencies, creative people, directors and writers all from different places and saying this is something that could be really cool. Part of that process is wading through those kinds of things, finding out how many of them are legitimate or have the passion and then also weighing the idea of the game itself, about whether doing something like that would make the game better or worse. Right now it's just at the discussion phase.”

    It will have to depend on what road they decide to take, if they make some cartoon like that hot wheels animation series I'd be disappointed. I can see it as like a Fast&Furious Need for Speed type of deal though
