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.
