SuperData released their findings regarding PC, console and mobile revenue in March 2019 where The Division 2 surprisingly came out on top for console revenue, surpassing the loot box giant that is FIFA 19, but didn't make top 10 on PC.

The Division 2 topped the console revenue in March 2019, testifying once again that Ubisoft and Massive had an amazing launch for the looter shooter. The game surpassed the recurring revenue giants such as FIFA 19, Fortnite and the newly released Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Unlike some of the aforementioned titles though, The Division 2 revenue apparently flopped on PC since the game is nowhere to be found in SuperData 's top 10 list for the platform. PC is instead dominated by the usual suspects - Dungeon Fighter Online and League of Legends.

Fortnite and Sekiro fared much better than The Division 2 on PC as well, since Epic's battle royale cash printer landed in the fifth place and Sekiro stood at number sever, above Apex Legends, Dota 2 and World of Warcraft.

Regardless of not earning as much money as other games on specific platforms, Fortnite still managed to register a seven per cent year-over-year growth for March. Unlike many of its competitors, the game is available on all major platforms - PC, consoles and even mobile. 

Meanwhile, Rainbow Six Siege showed a short-lived spike in revenue compared to February by 43 per cent, due to the launch of Year 4 content. It still didn't hold up to last year's same period as it dropped by the rather worrying 20 per cent. This is also reflected in the concurrent as well as peak player count when comparing March 2018 to March 2019 on Steamcharts.

In general, premium PC are continuing to suffer the biggest revenue drops, standing at 23 per cent when compared to the previous year, which is not much of a surprise, given the blatant disregard for customers some publishers have shown in recent periods.

Mobile spending dropped by three per cent, while console spending is the only one that actually grew in this period, with a 10 per cent increase.
