Epic Games' wunderkind, Fortnite Battle Royale, has dropped out of top 10 video games by revenue on PC. On the other side of the spectrum, League of Legends is still number one, ahead of Dungeon Fighter Online which takes the throne occasionally.

Fortnite's waning popularity is becoming more obvious as each month's revenue reports come in. The latest one from SuperData, regarding the month of November 2019, further confirmed that theory.

Namely, Fortnite is no longer in the top 10 earning video games on PC as a slew of successful new titles popped up along with long-standing titans when it comes to recurring revenue, such as League of Legends.

Furthermore, the game dropped to #8 spot in the console section as well, with SuperData noting that the free-to-play console segment is dropping overall with a 41 per cent loss compared to the same month in 2018. 

Red Dead Redemption 2 is no longer on either PC or console top 10 lists, despite GTA V still going strong on consoles. RDR2's woes may be attributed to low sale in the opening month on PC as it sold only 408,000 units during the Epic Games Store exclusivity period.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order have placed high on both PC and consoles. Considering the first one is Activision's annual hyper revenue machine, it's not really surprising, while Jedi Fallen Order is a game without any microtransactions. Respawn Entertainment's title outsold the previous EA Star Wars entry, Battlefront II, with a ratio of more than 2 to 1 in the opening month.

Meanwhile, on the continued success side of things, League of Legends topped the list on PC, ahead of Dungeon Fighter Online, the only game that seems to overtake LoL from time to time.
