GTA V is the highest earning Digital Console Game of all time earning $1.4B

GTA V is the highest earning digital console of all time. Not just GTA V, but almost every popular console game who tends on releasing DLC pack earns more than 50% of the game’s initial sale. Apparently, every month 75% of console players purchase DLC or additional content. Let’s not forget about the microtransactions the games offer too. It feels like an additional content is a way for success, however, only if your game title is stable, successful, and popular.

Overwatch and Rocket League are just behind GTA V. Game Developing Companies aim to develop additional content to improve the game’s income. In a period of 3 to 6 months, popular video games most likely receive a new DLC.

Below you can find the top 3 games with the highest monthly earnings, thanks to additional content, brought to you by SuperData.

Top 3 console games with the highest monthly revenue

  • Grand Theft Auto V (+ Monthly Average Player Spending)
  • Overwatch
  • Rocket League

This also includes microtransactions, DLC and season passes. Microtransactions seem to fail in single-player, which differs from multiplayer titles where they’re actually increasing the revenue by far. Does this mean that every modern console game will offer DLCs in the future? It definitely seems like it!

Some people find that Additional Content is just a rip-off and they do not approve it. However, whether we like it or not, DLCs will keep on appearing on the market.
