LoL was the top earning PC game in May, Overwatch & Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds still doing great

Superdata has released some new stats, reporting that  while the worldwide digital video games market grew 9% year-over-year in May, PC sales declined by 30%. This decline was mainly due to Overwatch’s release in May 2016 which significantly boosted PC sales back then.

According to Superdata’s data, League of Legends was the top earning PC game in May 2017. Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds (which hit 4 million sold copies) has sold 791,000 units in May 2017, and Overwatch digital revenues are up from April but down from May 2016, when it launched.

It’s also worth noting that  Free-to-play and pay-to-play games grew 17% and 12% respectively in May 2017.

Here are the top grossing title by category in 2017!

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.
