I have been waiting for SuperData Research to do their monthly chart blog post, but I guess they were serious when they said they were going to take the last two weeks of the year off.
So no post with supplementary data. They did tweet the November 2017 chart before they went on their break, so I might as well put that up.
On the PC side of the chart League of Legends remains glued in first place while PlayerUnknown’s Battleground held on to the second spot. Not bad for a $30 game. After reaching fourth place in October Destiny 2 dropped two spots, placing it just ahead of World of Warcraft which remained in seventh. Call of Duty: WWII broke into the list at either, displacing World of Tanks, while Star Wars Battlefront 2, whose business model garnered so much attention last month, took the final position for November. I expect those two EA titles will rise when we get the December chart.
On the console side of things Call of Duty: WWII topped the chart, displacing FIFA 18, while Star Wars Battlefront 2 grabbed third. Meanwhile Fortnite: Battle Royale … I guess that whole co-op idea the started with is dead if they’ve put “battle royale” in the name now… made its way into eighth place. It will be interesting to see if its rival, PlayerUnknown’s Battleground, which hit XBox One this month, will top it on the next chart.
On the mobile side Candy Crush Saga remained on the chart, popping up from ninth to fifth place. More interesting to me is NCsoft’s Lineage M and Lineage 2 Revolution on the chart. As we saw on the last NCsoft financial statement, mobile is taking off for them. It makes you wonder if they might want to dump that whole MMO genre now that mobile is bringing in more revenue than any of their PC titles.
