Nice thread, lots of work went into it!

For Activision, did you count Blizzard games? I know VGC has terrible data for PC sales but a lot of their games passed the 10 million mark like Overwatch, Diablo III, World of Warcraft and StarCraft.



Signature goes here!

I counted what VGC had as Activision (Unfortunately they own Blizzard =p)

And unfortunately these 4 weren't show as over 10M. But surely I will count if we have a source. I'm in the process of reviewing the OP to add these.

BTW, here are all the games on Steam that are over 10m players in the recently Steam data leak:

Team Fortress 2- 50,191,347
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive- 46,305,966
PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS- 36,604,134
Unturned- 27,381,399
Left 4 Dead 2- 23,143,723
PAYDAY 2- 18,643,807
Garry's Mod- 18,576,379
Warframe- 16,332,217
Counter-Strike: Source- 15,001,876
Paladins- 14,371,946
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim- 13,235,488
Terraria- 13,132,545
Portal 2- 13,062,700
Sid Meier's Civilization V- 12,701,498
Grand Theft Auto V- 12,604,123
Borderlands 2- 11,218,936
Robocraft- 10,145,493
Rocket League- 10,110,342

Some of those are F2P, and some of them have most likely had free weekends which skewed players vs sales, but do with it what you will.



Tomorrow I'll update the table. Text is already corrected. Total count is over 100 titles already. Or over 1B SW on a handful of games.
