SuperData: PUBG sold 4.7m units in June thanks to Steam Sale

Much has been written about the demise of PUBG's playerbase from its peak earlier this year, but the game actually enjoyed its second best-selling month in terms of units in June following October last year. 

That's according to research from SuperData that shows that 4.7m copies of the hit battle royale game were shifted during the last month. That's due to the game getting its first ever price cut in the Steam Summer Sale.

That helped the title return to the Top Ten digital PC games by revenue, sliding into third place ahead of CrossFire and Fortnite.

The Sims 4 is also still going strong. The new expansion pack for the management title for sociopaths, Seasons, sold 800,000 copies during last month. This is the second most successful expansion following last year's Cats and Dogs DLC.

The Crew 2 sold 700,000 units digitally across all platforms, falling short of the heights that Ubisoft enjoyed with Far Cry 5 earlier this year.

Here are the Top Ten games by revenue for June:

1. League of Legends, Riot
2. Dungeon Fighter Online, xx
3. Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, PUBG Corp
4. Crossfire, Smilegate
5. Fantasy Westward Jouney Online II, xx
6. Fortnite: Battle Royale, Epic
7. World of Warcraft, Blizzard
8. World of Tanks, Wargaming
9. DOTA 2, Valve
10. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Valve
