Battlefield 5 and Fallout 76 have failed to meet franchise benchmarks according to Superdata

SuperData Arcade has shared its monthly report, stating that Battlefield V and Fallout 76 launches fail to meet franchise benchmarks. Superdata estimates that Battlefield V and Fallout 76 sold 1.9 million and 1.4 million digital units, respectively, across console and PC at launch. Both are down from Battlefield 1 and Fallout 4.

Furthermore, SuperData claims that Rainbow Six Siege shows signs of fatigue. Ubisoft’s popular FPS title has had a better-than-expected performance throughout most of 2018. However, additional content revenue declined 33% in November, the game’s biggest decline to date, and follows a decline in October as well.

SuperData also claimed that Destiny 2?s “Forsaken” boost was short lived. SuperData estimates additional content revenue for Destiny 2 dropped 63% year-over-year. Overall, engagement and monetization seem to have reverted back to the same levels last seen before the launch of the “Forsaken” DLC in September.

As always, here are the world’s most popular digital games across PC, console and mobile for August 2018.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
