SARPBC 2 Name Announcement

Postby Psyonix-Dave on Wed Feb 19, 2014 8:31 pm

With much...MUCH deliberation, we have decided that SARPBC 2 will be called...

Image
[Prototype logo]

We are absolutely not getting rid of the name Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars. It is still a SARPBC game and you will see that name used in the game and in references to it in the press and branding materials we send out. In effect, you are playing in the Rocket League with Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars. The sequel is going to be a substantial update and we want to give people the ability to refer to it in a way that is easier to remember and tell their friends about.

We're still accepting signups for the Alpha coming next week on Thursday, February 27! https://psyonixhr.wufoo.com/forms/bc2-alpha-signup/

Surprised to hear about the change, but it's welcome. The SARPBC name will always be attached to the series in one way or another. This is not only an easy way to explain the game to a new player without getting past the elephant in the room of a name. :)

I think it will obviously keep the players we have that are SARPBC fans, now we can also create new fans of the "new brand" just a different storefront. Plus it really sets the tone for the next evolution of SARPBC if it was an actual sport. An official league. :)

Can't wait for the beta and looking forward to providing feedback!

Name choice makes sense, makes it easier to refer to this game. Logo looks nice an clean.
A real upgrade to the old one, adequate for 2014.

Maybe would have preferred a 3D-font though, which would be a little more in-your-face, but other than that... gettin really exited for the game here.

Not sure I like Rocket League, but only because I dont feel it describes the game. It sounds like a flying game when mentioned.

Think its wise not to have 2 in the title. Think it will make it more appealing to a new audience.

The logo looks okay. although its a prototype I think needs to have a ball in there somewhere.

Totally agree, there's nothing there that tells the audience it is about football. A majority of your audience will be people who like football or sports and Rocket league hardly refers to any of that :?
