It’s all the fault of weak sales of games for mobile devices and personal computers.
SuperData has published the November results of global digital sales of games.
They are far from brilliant. The market showed a drop. In November, users spent $9.05 billion on digital versions of games. This is 1% less than in the same period a year earlier.
The main reason is the drop in sales in mobile and on PC. The revenue of both decreased by 5% compared to last year. The analytical company does not explain what this may be related to.
SuperData also notes that the starting figures of Battlefield V and Fallout 76 were less than those of the previous parts of these series. According to analysts, Battlefield V sold 1.9 million copies in the first month, and Fallout 76 — 1.4 million copies (across all platforms).
