Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has sold around 1.4 million digital units at launch, Fortnite is still going strong

SuperData Arcade has shared its monthly report, stating that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has sold roughly 1.4 million digital units across console and PC, thus outperforming FromSoftware’s previous title, Dark Souls 3.

It’s worth noting that the overall sales for Sekiro are higher. Earlier this month, Activision stated that the game has already sold more than two million copies worldwide.

Moreover, Fortnite continues to hold steady despite increased competition. According to SuperData’s stats, Fortnite’s revenue grew 7% year-over-year in March, which is the first year-ago comparison that includes console, PC and Mobile.

On the other hand, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege declines again despite “Year Four” spike. While Rainbow Six in-game spending increased 43% across console and PC in March compared to February on the back of a new “Year Four” content release, revenue was still down roughly 20% year-over-year.

Below you can find the key features of SuperData’s report.

  • Fortnite continues to hold steady despite increased competition. Fortnite revenue grew 7% year-over-year in March, which is the first year-ago comparison that includes console, PC and Mobile (Fortnite began its iOS beta in March 2018). We expect that Fortnite will face tough comparisons going forward as it’s unlikely to replicate last year’s meteoric rise during Spring and Summer 2018.
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege declines again despite “Year Four” spike. Rainbow Six in-game spending increased 43% across console and PC in March compared to February on the back of a new “Year Four” content release. However, revenue was still down roughly 20% year-over-year.
  • Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice outsells Dark Souls III. Activision’s new release sold roughly 1.4 million digital units across console and PC, compared to 1.2 million units for Dark Souls III during its own launch in April 2016. Growth in digital units came primarily from console, where the download rate is significantly higher than it was three years ago.

Last but not least, here are the world’s most popular digital games across PC, console and mobile for March 2019.
