Call of Duty Modern Warfare - Season 1

SuperData has released its 2020 Year in Review for digital games and interactive media, listing the highest-earning premium games of last year. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare emerged on top, earning $1,913 billion in revenue. Much of that success can be attributed to Call of Duty: Warzone, the battle royale mode which saw a massively positive response.

Titles like FIFA 20, Grand Theft Auto 5 and NBA 2K21 also featured in the rankings. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, which recently had Warzone integrated into it, managed to earn $678 million in revenue while Cyberpunk 2077 raked in $609 million. On the Nintendo side, Animal Crossing: New Horizons managed to earn an impressive $654 million.

As SuperData notes, the top 10 highest-earning premium titles managed to account for 34 percent of the overall market. The COVID-19 pandemic also played a role in the popularity of games last year – a survey by SuperData indicated that 36 percent of players would indulge in video games in place of other entertainment. With the release of next-gen consoles, it remains to be seen if this year can top the last in terms of revenue. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
