Where Bethesda Stands Among Steam’s 2019 Best-Sellers List

Valve has published lists of a best-selling and most-played Steam games of 2019, and Bethesda Softworks’ biggest hits are fascinating to consider. In a gold category, The Elder Scrolls Online sits during series 3 on a list of Steam’s tip 100 sellers of a year (by sum revenue). ESO is a large diversion in terms of scope, though it’s got a lot of enlargement calm and microtransactions available, as well, so it’s not startling to learn that it’s Bethesda’s highest-earning pretension on a platform.

In a bronze category, a publisher’s subsequent large diversion of 2019 was Rage 2, grown by Avalanche Studios and id Software; it sits dual spots behind Microsoft’s Gears 5. Bethesda’s other dual top-selling games on Steam were Fallout 4 and—closer to a bottom of a list—Skyrim Special Edition. The publisher had dual platinum-selling games in the virtual-reality category this year: Skyrim VR during series 10 and Fallout 4 VR during series 11. No genuine surprises there. Doom VFR is serve down a list in a china category, and Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot unsuccessful to make a list altogether.

On a list of 2019’s most-played games (“with a top rise coexisting players”), Bethesda’s large leader is still 2015’s Fallout 4, with ESO only 4 places behind it. Skyrim is a third Bethesda pretension to moment 25,000 coexisting players on Steam this year. This is all only one PC ecosystem, mind you, though given Steam’s popularity, it does strengthen some renouned beliefs: that people still wish large single-player RPGs, that Fallout 76 doesn’t have a assembly that the prototype did, and that The Elder Scrolls Online is still an impossibly inestimable MMO.
