Top Releases of November 2019
As we near the end of 2019, we’re continuing our look at popular monthly releases on Steam. With this post, we’ll be looking back at the top 20 products released in November, measured by revenue generated during the first two weeks following release. We’ve also gathered the top 5 free-to-play releases, measured by peak concurrent player count in the two weeks following release.
With each month’s list, we often highlight similarities between some of the month’s top products. But this month, we noticed an exciting contrast between established franchises from well-known developers and fresh entries from newly created teams. Seeing franchises like Age of Empires, Sniper Ghost Warrior and Football Manager alongside newcomers like FrenzyRetribution, Ratropolis, and Lost Ember is really a testament to the variety of tastes present in the Steam community. Players certainly enjoy familiar content, but there is always room for unexpected surprises.
Another theme that stands out this month is the significant representation of prominent fan-favorite universes. These are names that need no introduction, as they are popular all over the world, not only in games – Gundam, Game of Thrones, Terminator, Warhammer and Star Wars. The success of these titles shows just how much excitement can be generated by huge universes that span across artistic mediums. Whether its comics, music, film or TV, we are definitely looking forward to seeing more universes make their way to games. Who knows, the franchise from your favorite book or movie just might end up on a future top release list.
Finally, we’d like to congratulate the teams that are releasing their very first product on Steam. Some of these teams have been making games for a while on other platforms, while some are recent college grads making their first commercial product. We’re happy to welcome these 10 development teams that are new to Steam: Blueside, FrenzyZoneGameworkshop, YOUZU (SINGAPORE) PTE. LTD., Mobile Technologies LLC, ALLM Co., Ltd., 2×2 Games, UMEO Studios, Respawn Entertainment, Cassel Games and Mooneye Studios.
