A new study has found loot boxes to be a predatory practice, and that research could have an impact on new laws in Australia. Psyonix says theres no plans for a Rocket League 2 for the forseeable - they’re more than happy to keep supporting Rocket League 1. And Steam has a ballooning number of VR users. And users full stop. And games for those users to play.
