Rocket Arena was delisted on all platforms on November 14, 2023, just one day after the game was set to leave Game Pass and EA Play. The reason for the game’s sudden and unannounced delisting is unknown, but was almost certainly due to a lack of active support and consistent single-digit player counts.

One month after Rocket Arena was delisted, Final Strike Games returned to announce that the game’s servers would shut down on March 21, 2024. In their announcement, they detailed upcoming community events and content changes, such as disabling in-game purchases.

It’s with a heavy heart from all of us at FSG and EA to inform you that Rocket Arena will be sunset and the servers shut down on March 21, 2024 12:00 PM PDT.

Thank You! 
We can’t thank you all enough for playing Rocket Arena and supporting us during this journey. We’re thrilled that people from all around the world got to enjoy Rocket Arena for three and a half years since it launched in July of 2020. Since then, there’s been a ton of Knockouts, Megablasts, Rocketball goals, Mega Rockets captured, and coins collected. We’ve been consistently blown away by the kindness, care, and camaraderie that’s been shown from the Rocket Arena community. 

We’ve gotten to know many of you on a personal level over these years and we even have a community member that works at Final Strike now! (Shoutout to @SlackingVeteran!) Rocket Arena wouldn’t have been as special as it is without this community’s great input over that time. A big thank you to our community, and for all of your feedback, balance notes, feature ideas, and inspiring artwork that was provided along the way! Thank you all for making Rocket Arena such an unforgettable and special experience.

About the Game

Welcome to a world where the rules are written in rocket fuel.

Rockets rule everything in Rocket Arena, an explosive 3v3 shooter where you’re never out of the action. Master your hero’s unique rockets and abilities to rule the arena and become a champion! Adapt your strategy with an ever-growing roster of diverse heroes with distinctive powers. Unearth new strategies and tactics based on your squad, explore a wide variety of dynamic maps, and discover the true depth of rocket gameplay.


  • Rocket-fueled heroes — Explore a growing roster of fantastic heroes, each with distinctive personalities, backstories, and rivalries. Master your hero’s powerful abilities and signature rockets, and get the most out of your squad.
  • Death-defying action — Never say die because, in Rocket Arena, you can’t! Taking too many hits will blast you out of the arena but not out of the action. Ride your rocket right back in, survey the scene, and return to the fight.
  • Reach new strategic depths (and heights) — Rockets are easy to use but challenging to truly master. Learn how to time your dodges, lead your targets, and use items and gadgets like the Rocket Magnet, Trip Mine, and Speed Boost to change the course of combat. Become one with your rocket, and you will rule the arena.
  • Explore a bold, new world — From tropical ruins of The Gemstone Jungle to the high-tech, utopian Boom City, the world of Crater is home to many exotic locales. Each map is filled with hidden tricks, traps, and lore to explore. Use your rockets to jump, climb, and explore the environment. There’s a world of possibility, so grab your rockets and take off!
  • Evolve your heroes — The sky’s the limit for your heroes. Every match you play with them earns experience, unlocking Rocket Parts, Totem Parts, and spectacular outfits you can use to customize their look. You’ll also unlock powerful artifacts as you play — mix, match, and level them up to give your heroes impressive new stat boosts and effects! You’ll need every edge you can get to rule the Rocket Championship Tour.
  • Change the game — There’s more than one way to play. Dive into Knockout for classic 3v3 competitive action, or warm up first against RocketBots and test out your favorite combos. Compete to score goals in Rocketball, control zones in Mega Rocket, and go for the gold in Treasure Hunt. When you’re ready to go rocket-to-rocket with the best, dive into Ranked Play and show ‘em what you’re made of. Let’s Rocket!

This game includes optional in-game purchases of virtual currency that can be used to acquire virtual in-game items.
