DOTA 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Team Fortress 2 accrued over $400m last year

Valve made more than $730m in 2014, report claims

Valve made more than $730m in revenue from Steam and its own games in 2014, according to a report.

Market data firm SuperData provided The Know with estimated revenues for both Valve’s digital marketplace and its top three games DOTA 2, Team Fortress 2 and Counter-Strike Global Offensive.

Those titles were said to have brought in over $400m in revenue for the company. It was also estimated that total 2014 revenues for Steam reached $1.5bn. As Valve takes a 30 per cent cut of each sale, and taking out money from Valve’s own games, the company’s royalties from third-party titles were calculated at roughly $330m.

Together, it was suggested Valve made at least $730m last year. It should be noted however that Valve has not released its own figures. Steam revenue numbers were also labelled a “conservative” estimate – Valve could be earning more.

SuperData has confirmed numbers reported above with Develop.
