Psyonix VP Jeremy Dunham recently held an interview where he explained why no Rocket League sequel is in the works. Apparently, the company doesn't want to break up the community it has already built and which is still growing, reaching 10.5 million copies sold and 27 million registered users. Dunham explains that the company won't consider releasing a sequel just to add a few new features, favoring updating the current game instead, assuring gamers that "we're in it for the long haul, if they're in it for the long haul."
