FIFA 17 topped UK digital charts in February

FIFA 17 has once again topped the UK digital Top Ten, making a huge 7.59m in February, according to SuperData. Sales were down over 15 per cent compared to January for EA’s football behemoth, but it still made almost twice as much revenue as February’s No.2, Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V, during the same period.

Rockstar’s best-seller generated 4.15m in revenue (compared to 4.42m in January), putting it just ahead of Activision Blizzard’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and its 3.17m. Sales for the FPS title were actually up 9.3 per cent month-on-month, likely due to the release of the Sabotage DLC early in February.

EA also took fourth place with Battlefield 1, which made 2.91m, as well as the seventh spot with FIFA 16, which still managed to make 1.56m despite being out for well over two years.

Studio Wildcard’s Ark: Survival Evolved kept its fifth spot last month with 2.27m in revenues – a 15 per cent decline compared to January. Meanwhile, Ubisoft’s For Honor debuted at No.8 with revenues reaching 1.54m.

With four titles in the Top Ten (with usual suspects Destiny and Overwatch being respectively at No.9 and No.10), Activision Blizzard made 7.26m in February, which didn’t even reached what FIFA 17 made alone. So EA, once again, was the top digital publisher last month, with added revenues reaching 12.06m.
