Top 5 Grossing Digital Console, PC Games for March 2016 Revealed in Report
The Division leads the way on console and PC, according to SuperData.
Research group SuperData has posted its report for March 2016, detailing what it claims were the top-grossing console, mobile, and PC digital games for the month, as well as overall consumer spend.
According to SuperData, worldwide digital game sales totaled $6.2 billion in March, up 5 percent compared to March 2015. In terms of growth by category, console came out on top, with revenue rising 23 percent, while sectors including mobile, free-to-play MMO, and PC also posted year-on-year growth.
Not all segments showed year-over-year growth, however, as social gaming fell 10 percent "as casual gamers increasingly shift to mobile devices."
Breaking things down by category, The Division came out on top in the digital console chart in terms of worldwide revenue across systems. Rounding out the the top five were Call of Duty: Black Ops III (February's No. 1), FIFA 16, Grand Theft Auto V, and Fallout 4.
In a blog post, SuperData said The Division pulled in $109 million from digital sales, which was $48 million more than Black Ops III. It was also mentioned that Black Ops III revenue fell 17 percent in March compared to February. The firm also pointed out that Madden NFL 16 dropped to 10th place overall, from a position in the top five in February, with revenue dipping 31 percent.
The Division also took the top spot on the PC digital game chart. League of Legends was the highest-earning game in the free-to-play MMO segment, which is how SuperData categorizes it. World of Warcraft topped the charts for pay-to-play MMOs, while DoubleDown Casino was the best performer in March in the social games category.
