Global digital video game sales got off to a strong start in 2017, boosted by growth in downloads to consoles and PCs after the holiday season, according to a new report.
Revenue from games downloaded directly to consoles, PCs and mobile devices surged 9.8 percent in January from the same period last year to $7.47 billion, analysis firm SuperData Research reports. It does not include sales of physical software.
"The shift to digital for the console market shows no signs of a slowdown, particularly in the U.S. where the segment rose 43 percent," SuperData said in a report.
The console performance was underscored by the strength of blockbuster franchises like Electronic Arts' "FIFA" and Take-Two Interactive's "Grand Theft Auto," and also by the rise of "ARK: Survival Evolved," an "unusual standout" from the small, privately held publisher Studio Wildcard, SuperData notes.
"ARK: Survival Evolved" edged out titles by so-called triple-A publishers to take the No. 4 spot among digital console games after launching on PlayStation 4 in December.
Meanwhile, the latest installment in Activision's popular "Call of Duty" series continued to see weaker-than-usual sales.
"Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" sold 41 percent fewer units to PC and console gamers in January compared with the last installment, "Black Ops III." That follows a 23 percent drop in December. However, declining unit sales were offset by a higher average selling price for deluxe versions of the game, SuperData noted.
Finally, long-beleaguered social media game developer Zynga got some good news: Sales of "Zynga Poker" rose 19 percent to $13 million for its fourth straight month of revenue growth. "Zynga Poker" also converted 4.9 percent of all users into paying players, a record high, according to SuperData.
