When Epic Games announced its acquisition of Psyonix, it also announced that Rocket League will be made available on the Epic Games Store in the future. At the same time, it also gave ambiguous statements about its continued availability on Steam.
The situation proved to be rather worrying for some fans, especially considering Epic Games’ recent timed exclusivity streak. This resulted in a pretty predictable outcome: review bombing on Steam.
In response, Steam kicked in its off-topic reviews label, nullifying the recent negative review spike to keep Rocket League’s score as “Very Positive”. Valve has done the same before with the review bombing of Borderlands 3.
Despite Psyinox’s clarification, fans’ worries are not unfounded.vIt’s also interesting to see Valve making use of the off-topic review label so soon after the first one, which was barely a month ago.
