Digital CCGs are a big money maker — if the latest report from SuperData is anything to go by. According to the report, the CCG video game genre is set to bring in $1.5 billion by the end of the year. Moreover, they’re projected to be pulling $2 billion annually by 2020.
The report breaks down the general revenue in the US, noting that most players purchase additional content with three out of four players spending $10 or more in the last three months. Also of note is the fact that three out of four players are on smartphones.
Of the game titles listed in the report, Hearthsone is the most played, thanks in part to early adoption by well-known gaming personalities. Other games included on the list are Magic: The Gathering, Pokemon TCG, Yu-Gi-Oh, The Elder Scrolls: Legends, and Gwent. As you can see in the chart below, none of these games are doing badly, but Hearthstone is doing very well.
