Leading PC game sales – additional information

The global PC software market was valued at 28 billion U.S. dollars in 2015. In the United States alone, digital PC gaming generated 1.67 billion U.S dollars in revenue. Sources expect that the industry will follow a path of slow but steady growth, and in 2019 PC gaming software revenue is projected to reach 36 billion U.S. dollars.

PC gaming remains a lucrative market. While League of Legends was the top digital PC game based on revenue, The Sims 3, published by Electronic Arts and released in 2009, remains to this day the PC game with the highest unit sales. World of Warcraft, over the course of its life on the PC gaming market, has sold 6.18 million copies and in 2015 alone generated 814 million U.S. dollars in revenue worldwide solely via digital sales.

The fourth installment of the Sims also claimed two spots on the list of the most highly anticipated PC game titles in 2015. However, the leader in the ranking was Fallout 4, which was released worldwide on November 10, 2015, by the publisher Bethesda Softworks. In fact, in only 24 hours after its release, the game had generated 750 million U.S. dollars in sales revenues across all platforms. As of March 2016, Fallout 4 was the second-best-selling video game within an opening week.
