FIFA 17 is once again the biggest-selling digital title in the UK, according to SuperData's latest digital charts data. The EA title made a massive £7.84m in April, which is up 6.2 per cent month-on-month. 

March's No.2, Ubisoft's Ghost Recon Wildlands, however, fell to No.5 last month, after a 62 per cent fall in digital revenue to £1.72m. This allowed Battlefield 1 to climb a place last month to No.2, despite digital revenue staying flat at £4.21m.

There were a couple of new entries in the Top 10 last month, with Persona 5 debuting at No.6 after making £1.55m in digital revenue. Overwatch also made a comeback at No.9 with digital revenue at £1.1m, which is only likely to grow in SuperData's next monthly chart thanks to its digital Game of the Year release on May 24th. Despite re-entering the charts last month, however, Overwatch wasn't quite as successful as FIFA 16, which re-entered the charts at No.8 after making £1.17m in digital revenue. 

Meanwhile, Horizon Zero Dawn and Mass Effect Andromeda fell out of the Top 10 last month, allowing Call of Duty: Black Ops III to rise two places to No.7 despite a 23 per cent fall in digital revenue month-on-month. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare also rose two spots to No.4, but this, too, was down on last month after a 20 per cent decline month-on-month.

Here's the Top 10 digital console games in the UK for April 2017 in full:

1. FIFA 17 (EA), £7.84m
