Here are the Top Grossing Games on PC Last June
SuperData has released a report revealing the top grossing games in the US last June. The report only takes into account digital sales but shows quite a few surprises, especially on the PC end. For one, PUBG outdid Fortnite in revenue. This might have a lot to do with the fact that PUBG went on sale for the first time last June, which resulted in 4.7 million units sold just that month. That’s even more impressive given that before June, PUBG’s number of concurrent users on Steam has been on a downward slope.
Here are the top 10 grossing games on PC based on digital sales according to SuperData’s report:
- League of Legends
- Dungeon Fighter Online
- PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
- Fantasy Westward Journey Online II
- Fortnite: Battle Royale
- World of Warcraft
- World of Tanks
- DOTA 2
- Counter-Strike Global Offensive
SuperData Arcade subscribers get access to a more detailed report, but SuperData did share some key items from the full report that gives insight to how a few other games fared last June. Here are those key items right from their report:
- PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds gets huge bump from Steam sale. PUBG sold 4.7 million units on PC in June, up significantly from May and only second to its peak month in October 2017. Growth was underpinned by a reduced price point of $19.99 on Steam.
- The Crew 2 sells 700,000 digital units across Console and PC at launch. The Crew 2 fell far short of Far Cry 5‘s impressive launch earlier this year but digital sales eclipsed those of the original The Crew due to the shift away from physical sales.
- The Sims 4 is still going as strong as ever. We estimate that over 800,000 PC players purchased the new “Seasons” expansion for The Sims 4 in June, making it the game’s second-most successful expansion after November’s “Cats and Dogs”. This is especially impressive considering The Sims 4 is approaching its fourth year.
- Call of Duty: WWII trajectory outpaces Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare but lags Call of Duty: Black Ops III. WWII’s additional content revenue was up significantly compared to IW’s last year due to a new DLC release, but it still could not match BOIII’s “Zombies” DLC sales last June, despite BOIII being in its second year at the time.
It’ll be interesting to see how the top 10 list will change with the big releases coming in the next couple of months. If nothing else, at least we know that digital games are doing well and that can only be good for us gamers.
