The number crunchers at market research firm SuperData Research have once again published a report this month in which they tell us which games generated the most revenue in recent weeks, or more precisely, in the month of April 2019. In doing so, they have divided the titles into mobile games, PC games, and console titles. We've summarized the top 10 in each category for you below, but before that, here are some exciting observations:
- Since we've been covering SuperData's reports (since April 2016, after all), there's only been one brief period when World of Warcraft disappeared from the top 10 best-selling PC games - and that was at the end of 2018. In January 2019, WoW already celebrated the comeback (with 7th place), in March 2019 it was still enough for 10th place. In April, the top 10 now had to do without the Blizzard MMO again.Instead, Hearthstone celebrated a comeback in the PC top 10 - Conspiracy of Shadows be thanked. According to SuperData, however, sales in 2019 so far are expected to be significantly below those of the previous year. It's a similar story for Overwatch (month-over-month sales increase, but lower year-over-year sales), except that it wasn't enough to make a comeback into the top 10.Fortnite clearly took on PUBG and Apex Legends in the battle of the Battle Royale titles. While Epic Games' game continues to appear in not one but two top 10 lists, its competitors had to say goodbye.Mortal Kombat 11 puts down the most successful digital launch in franchise history.
