Worldwide digital spending on videogames grew by 17% in December 2017. A press release from industry analysts Superdata says gamers spent $10 billion digitally over the holiday period.
If you think $10 billion is a lot, total games revenue is set to hit $230 billion by 22.
That figure is 19% higher than the same period in 2016. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (and various mobile clones), Call of Duty: WWII, Grand Theft Auto V, and Fortnite Battle Royale – which earned $89 million during December – were all mentioned as having found significant success during the past year.
