We are honoured and excited to help Psyonix bring Rocket League: Collector’s Edition to a whole new audience,” 505 president Ian Howe said. As big as Rocket League has become, both 505 Games and Psyonix believe that there is still a significant untapped segment of the gaming audience who become aware of products through physical retail."
