SuperData Research is back with their numbers for the July digital video game market.
On the PC side of the chart the same top four remain, but Crossfire dropped down to 4th place from second. After that World of Warcraft moved up to 5th position, with PlayerUnknown’s Battleground in 6th, and World of Tanks in 7th as DOTA 2 slipped down three slots since June. Meanwhile Overwatch and ROBLOX swapped their spots in 9th and 10th place.
On the mobile side of things, the one year anniversary celebrations put Pokemon Go back on the top ten list, while Candy Crush Saga dropped a spot but stayed on the list.
Other items from SuperData’s monthly update:
- Console leads U.S. digital growth. July’s year-over-year growth was underpinned by a 20% rise in console digital revenue and an 18% increase in free-to-play MMO revenue.
- Pokemon GO enjoyed a summer bump with their anniversary event.
Pokemon GO had its strongest month of the year so far growing month-over-month. However, this is still down from the $150+ million generated last July when the game launched.
- PLAYERUNKNOWN’s Battlegrounds sold another 1.6 million digital units in July. The gaming video content darling continued its rise, with 4.9 million monthly active users in July.
- Grand Theft Auto V stands strong for another month. Through its microtransactions model, GTA Online grew significantly year-over-year for the month of July across console and PC. It did not outperform its record-breaking numbers in June.
- Roblox hits record high MAU on PC. Roblox continues its upward trajectory with a sequential-month gain in monthly active users. On the other hand, monthly revenue appears to have temporarily leveled off due to a slight drop in both conversion and ARPPU.
