Assassin's Creed Valhalla is not only the most successful title in the Assassin's Creed series, but also the most successful Ubisoft game. According to one Report from SuperData, Valhalla sold 1.7 million copies at launch. About 50 percent more than the predecessor Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Valhalla's total revenue exceeded Odyssey by 23 percent, but income from in-game sales was 62 percent lower. One of the reasons for this is that Assassin's Creed Valhalla did not offer an experience booster in its shop when it was released. However, this has now been added to the game.
Among Us also experienced significant growth. The title had around half a billion active users in November, which makes it the most popular game among active players. However, Among Us revenues remained comparatively small as the game lacks strong monetization. A large part of the revenue came from the four euros the game costs on Steam. However, PC gamers only made up about three percent of total users in November.

The report also mentions that Spider-Man: Miles Morales, with 663 thousand, could not reach the 2.2 million sales of its predecessor, but sold better than Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War sold 5.7 million times in November. About seven percent more than the former record holder Black Ops 4. Thanks to Call of Duty Warzone, Moden Warfare had about 2.7 times as many players as Cold War in November 2020. World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is also on the road to success. With the highest revenue since 2008 and the highest number of players since 2010. Revenue compared to Battle for Azeroth increased by 50 percent and player numbers by 34 percent.
It was also announced that digital gaming revenue exceeded every other month in November 2020. A total of 11.5 billion US dollars were earned, an increase of 15 percent compared to November 2019. Mobile games saw growth of nine percent and PC games about 22 percent, which is a new record. The release of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is said to have played a major role in this. Console revenues also rose 24 percent, but failed to beat the April 2020 record. This is probably due to the limited number of Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X | S.
