Tencent's Honor of Kings was only the second-highest grossing game worldwide in September 2017 following three consecutive months at the top spot.
This is based on SuperData Research's monthly Worldwide Digital Games Market report, which has studied the top grossing games of September 2017.
NetEase's Fantasy Westward Journey, which had held firm in second place for the last three months, successfully overtook Tencent's MOBA. Supercell's Clash Royale landed third place.
The top ten highest grossing games worldwide in September 2017 were:
- Fantasy Westward Journey
- Honour of Kings
- Clash Royale
- Monster Strike
- Fate/Grand Order
- Candy Crush Saga
- Clash of Clans
- Dragon Chronicles
- Lineage 2 Revolution
- Lineage M
The list does show a sudden resurgence for Netmarble's Lineage 2 Revolution. It last appeared in the top grossing charts in May 2017, before having its sales seemingly taken away by NCSoft's Lineage M.
Pokemon GO has once again fallen out of the charts altogether. It has been in and out since May 2017, when it dropped out of the top ten charts for the first time since it was launched.
