Their recent report suggests that Overwatch has generated the highest revenue amongst all eSports titles in 2016. The report is only for premium games and hence it does not compete with Free to play games such as Dota2.
It is however better revenue generation than Valve’s CSGO which is a much more popular game at the moment.
As we can see Overwatch generated nearly double the revenue for Blizzard than CSGO did for Valve. The total amount generated by PC games is around $5.4 billion for the year 2016.
The future for Premium games in the following couple of years however does not look as bright. We expect a small depreciation in the premium games market for the upcoming years.
