Small update: Ok, here's the thing. We recorded this early today, before anybody knew about it and then Psyonix went and released an official statement before our upload.... don't forget: you still heard it here first <3

Rocket League’s free to play release date has been revealed. How, where and by who? By none other than Nintendo. Nintendo posted Rocket League as going free to play on September 23. This seems more like confirmation than a mere leak because it makes perfect sense:

It goes hand in hand with the date that Psyonix already suggested. The Rocket League developer had previously stated that the game would be releasing as free to play shortly after the game’s big summer update, which they scheduled for mid-September. On top of that, September 23 is the exact date on which Rocket League will leave Xbox Game Pass. Makes sense: Why would the game remain on Game Pass when it is free to play anyway?

All things point to this being much more than a leak and we’re happy that the former indie sensation will now be enjoyed by many, many more players. There is no shortage of players waiting to get their hands on the game either - it seems everybody’s been waiting for a f2p release date confirmation and now that we basically got one, all that is missing is an official confirmation. Your move Psyonix.

If you are entirely unfamiliar with Rocket League - the game was originally released in July 2015 and has since become a sensation with millions and millions of players. Behind all that greatness is a simple concept: Rocket powered cars, a big ball and two goals. What ensues is 1v1, 2v2 or 3v3 action with the basic premise of soccer. Good stuff.
