A Newzoo analysis shows that Warner Bros. Games’ “Hogwarts Legacy” was the highest-grossing title in the United States and the United Kingdom across PC and consoles for all of the first quarter.

In terms of revenue generated from UK customers, FIFA 23, Hogwarts: The Legacy, and Fortnite were the top three. In a similar vein, the best-selling games in the United States were Hogwarts Legacy, NBA 2K23, and Fortnite.
