The games industry may be a bit off-stride as it enters the holiday sales season. Superdata released its monthly sales report today, saying that worldwide digital spending on games in September was down 1% to $8.9 billion.
Part of that dip was attributable to new releases not living up to expectations, while another part was due to one established hit suffering a steeper drop. Superdata estimated that Fortnite revenue across all platforms was down 43% month-over-month, making it the worst month of sales for Epic's hit since November of 2017.
That decline was mirrored on Superdata's charts, where Fornite had been number one on consoles in August, but fell to seventh in September. On the PC charts, Fortnite slid from sixth to ninth.
As for the disappointing new releases, FIFA 20 did little to spark the series fortunes, as Superdata reported FIFA in-game spending declined slightly for the month. The firm attributed that to a tough comparison against last year's FIFA, which might have benefitted from launching in the wake of the FIFA World Cup in Russia.
