November was a humdrum month in terms of digital games spending, despite normally being one to keep an eye on with holiday sales popping up. Superdata reports that digital spending was largely flat last month, bringing in $9.05 billion across all platforms, down one percent year-over-year.
On console, digital spending was strong. Games like Fortnite and Red Dead Redemption 2 helped drive a 13 percent year-over-year increase across combined major consoles, but this was offset by declines in premium PC and mobile spending (down five percent year-over-year). In addition, Battlefield V and Fallout 76 saw weaker-than-expected launches.
