SuperData: Among Us — the most popular game in the history of the number of users per month

Analyst firm SuperData released a report on digital sales for November 2020.

The overall figures

In November 2020 digital games brought in 11.5 billion — the highest revenue in one month in history. Total revenue has increased by 15% than a year earlier. Once again, the figures increased on all types of platforms:

  1. Console — 24 % (a little below the record in April 2020).
  2. PC — 22 % (new record; in many ways thank you is to say World of Warcraft: Shadowlands).
  3. Mobile devices — 9 %.

Game

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has sold 5.7 million digital copies in the launch month, which is 7% higher compared to the previous record in the series, Black Ops 4. Thanks to the Warzone in November, Modern Warfare was 2.7 times more players than the Cold War.
  • Assassin’s Creed Valhalla bought 1.7 million times in the past month, which is 50% more launch sales of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. At launch, the total revenue from games increased by 23 % compared to the Odyssey, but in-game revenue fell 62 %.
  • The assets of Spider-Man: Miles Morales — 663 thousands of copies on the PlayStation 4 and 5. It has nothing to do with the release of Marvel’s Spider-Man in September of 2018, which was then 2.2 million units sold. If you compare with another spin-off of a popular franchise for the PlayStation, sales , Miles Morales was much higher than that of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy at the time.
  • The release of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands led to the highest monthly income from the game since 2008 and the number of players from 2010. Compared to run the add-on Battle for Azeroth in August 2018 income and the number of players was above 50 % and 34 %, respectively.
  • Among Us were about half a billion active users, making the game the most popular in the history of the number of gamers in one month. PC-version brought most of the revenue from August to November (64 %), despite the small share of the total audience (3% in November).
