SuperData’s April 2018 revenue report shows Fortnite setting new records, GTAO slowing down
Fortnite had another record month of revenue in April, according to SuperData’s latest global revenue report. “Epic’s Battle Royale shooter made $296 million in April across Console, PC and Mobile, up from $223 million in March,” says the firm.
But the more interesting story is SuperData’s assertion that “Grand Theft Auto V is finally showing its age.”
“GTA V Online revenue declined 9% year-over-year, ending an impressive streak of 12 consecutive months with year-over-year growth. GTA V Online has declined sequentially every month since the start of the year, likely in part due to the continued rise of Fortnite as well as a dearth of significant content updates from Rockstar.”
On the PC side, League of Legends has once again retained the top slot, Crossfire and Fantasy Westward Journey Online II swapped places, PUBG droppped down to 9, and Hearthstone’s re-entry to the top 10 bumped Far Cry 5 off entirely. Fortnite and World of Warcraft are holding in there in fifth and sixth place, respectively.
On console, Fortnite still claims the top slot, with God of War at number two. Sea of Thieves, which was in 7th place for console last month, is now off the list.
On mobile, Pokemon Go has dropped a few pegs and Lineage M no longer appears in the top 10.
