World of Warcraft Generates $161M in August, Surpasses League of Legends - MMORPG.com

The latest SuperData Research report for August 2018 has been published that shows that World of Warcraft has surpassed League of Legends in revenue generation thanks to the launch of the Battle for Azeroth expansion. WoW took in a whopping $161M in August, a number that does not include pre-orders in the months prior to August. According to the research company, WoW's subscriber numbers are the highest since 2014.

Other take aways from the report include:

  • Dungeon Fighter Online is still the king of PC revenue in August, followed by WoW, LoL, Monster Hunter: World and Crossfire. Fortnite has slipped to #7 on PC and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is #8. 
  • Fortnite is still topping the console charts, followed by FIFA 18, Grand Theft Auto V, Madden NFL 19 and Call of Duty: WWII.
  • Monster Hunter: World sold 2 million units on PC marking a successful launch.
