League of Legends has been dethroned again, according to SuperData’s latest game industry global revenue report for the month of July 2019. Riot’s MOBA has traded places, once again, with Dungeon Fighter Online, which is now presiding atop the whole PC list. Beyond that on the PC side, there hasn’t been a whole lot of movement since June, apart from PUBG popping back in at the expense of FIFA Online 3. And World of Warcraft – just west – still sits in the 7th slot.
On the console side, however, there’s been a large shift, as Fortnite dropped from 1st to 4th, displaced by the likes of GTA5 and Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Apex Legends has also returned to the top 10, though the analytics company does note its second season is already weaker than its first. Here’s the deal on Grand Theft Auto’s climb:
“Grand Theft Auto Online‘s Casino update leads to a huge uptick. We estimate Grand Theft Auto Online made $69 million across console and PC in July following the anticipated Diamond Casino update, marking one of the best sales months for the game since launch and the first month of double-digit year-over-year growth since August 2018.”
