Steam Reveals 2017's Biggest Earners, Including The Witcher 3, H1Z1, Ark and PUBG


Steam has revealed its list of 2017's top sellers. PC Gamer has the story.

Quote:
Steam has released its annual list of the highest-earning games of the year, and it includes one or two surprises. Among the 12 games that generated the most revenue in 2017 sits Ghost Recon Wildlands, for example, which I wouldn't have expected. The overall biggest earners also include evergreen titles like The Witcher 3, Rocket League and Counter Striker: Global Offensive.

To compile the list, Valve looked at game sales, in-game transactions, and DLC. It took the top 100 (the full list is here) and split them into tiers: platinum for the top 12, gold for the next group, and so on. That means there's no actual ranking—we just know roughly where each game placed.

Games I own from their list:

Platinum: zero
Gold: zero
Silver: one (f2p, lol)
Bronze: five

Needs better sales. Seriously. The sales suck now.

Agreed Steam sales have sucked the last couple of years.

What a weird, strange, and at times depressing list.

Divinity 2 is in the platinum category? Really? That’s exciting.

The Sims 3 is in there but not The Sims 4? How strange.

Planet Coaster is on the list? Good for them. I heard NOTHING about it after launch

This is because The Sims 4 isn't available on Steam; it was published after EA stopped releasing any of their games on Steam, in favor of their own digital platforms.

It's kinda hard for something to break onto a top-performing list if it's not even available for purchase to begin with.

Divinity 2 is one of the best games I've played all year, and one of the best CRPGs I've ever played. The game is exciting, and I'm glad it got Platinum to counter balance the mediocre, buggy, sloppy, mess of a game that is PUBG.
