Anthem Harvests Over $100 Million at Launch; Apex Legends Experiences Best Launch Month in F2P History
Industry intelligence firm SuperData Research has shared its digital sales data for the month of February, which includes some interesting numbers for EA’s Anthem and Apex Legends.
From the looks of it, February has been a good month for publisher EA as SuperData reports that Anthem has made over $100 million digital revenue at launch. In addition, the intelligence firm reports that Respawns’ Apex Legends experienced the best launch month of any free-to-play game in history.
“Anthem was the top-selling title by units on console in February, with an above-average digital download rate”, SuperData writes. “In-game spending came in at $3.5 million across both platforms.”
“Apex Legends generated an estimated $92 million from in-game spending across all platforms, with the majority coming from console. Despite this, Fortnite still came in above Apex Legends in the top grossing rankings.”
Overall, digital revenue is up by 2% compared to February last year. “Growth came primarily from mobile, which was up 9%”, the article reads. “This more than made up for the 6% decline in premium PC, where the market continues to face a tough comparison against sales of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds last year.”
