DOOM Eternal Digital Sales in March Hit 3 Million – SuperData

Half-Life: Alyx also generated $40.7 million in revenue last month.

Posted By | On 23rd, Apr. 2020

SuperData’s report on worldwide digital game sales in March 2020 has been released and it’s revealed some rather interesting numbers about last month’s biggest releases. Key among them is id Software’s DOOM Eternal which managed to sell 3 million digital units, over three times that of DOOM (2016) which sold 957,000 units.

It’s not surprising considering the hype around the game and positive reviews before launch. That being said, SuperData believes there may be a shorter revenue tail due to it being a primarily single-player game as opposed to having microtransactions like multiplayer titles. Half-Life: Alyx is even more interesting, however.

The VR title had 860,000 players last month but the revenue from direct purchases totaled $40.7 million. This is primarily due to the title being provided for free to those who purchased the Valve Index. Of course, the limited install base of VR headsets, especially on PC, also contributed to the sales numbers. Valve is still looking to support the game with its level editor and mods so it should have a thriving community around it for some time to come.
