Tom Clancy’s The Division may be suffering from its fair share of issues but it’s done a good job in sales. According to SuperData Research, not only did the MMO shooter take the top spot for digital sales on consoles for March but it actually siphoned off players from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
SuperData noted that, “Sales of The Division skyrocket, seizing the top spot from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Excitement pushed sales to over $109 million, making Tom Clancy’s The Division the highest grossing digital console title in March, $48 million ahead of runner-up Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Black Ops 3’s 17% month-over-month revenue decrease means The Division siphoned off attention and spending from Call of Duty fans.
“Black Ops 3 is not the only digital console title to see a significant decrease, Madden NFL fell to 10th place from the top 5 with revenue decreasing 31% month-over-month. NFL postseason excitement has clearly worn off.”
This comes in the midst of several bugs in The Division with issues like cheating still prevalent. How will it survive en route to update 1.2? We’ll find out in the coming weeks.
