Steam reveals 2017's biggest earners, including The Witcher 3, H1Z1 and PUBG

Steam reveals 2017's biggest earners, including The Witcher 3, H1Z1 and PUBG

To compile the list, Valve looked at game sales, in-game transactions, and DLC. It took the top 100 (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. The top 12 earners, in full, were - 

  • H1Z1
  • The Witcher 3
  • Divinity: Original Sin 2
  • Rainbow Six Siege
  • Dota 2
  • Ark: Survival Evolved
  • Counter Strike:Global Offensive
  • GTA V
  • Rocket League
  • Warframe
  • PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds
  • Ghost Recon Wildlands

Valve also published a list of the highest-earning new games of 2017, split by month of their release. That list, which you can view here, contains some more obscure titles that might be worth looking up.

I am surprised about H1Z1. I remember reading something about bad game from developer with bad reputation and servers being shit.

Dota 2 is free2play and made top 12?  People really spent all that money on cosmetic items?

I'm surprise TF2 is not in the top 100 even though Dota2 is

And I think it's two games now. Not sure how they'd handle that but it definitely seems odd.

It's quite nice to see The Witcher 3 still selling so well since it is such a spectacular game.

INFORMATION

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 is not expected!
