For the first time, digital sales of FIFA 21 surpassed physical sales in the UK. As was recently announced, sales of the game in the territory decreased by 42% in relation to the previous delivery, but according to GamesIndustry.biz, digital sales were up more than 31%.
With this, the game for the first time sells more digital copies than physical ones, and even becomes the franchise game with the most downloads at launch.
According to specialists, this could be due to the next generation of consoles, as some are waiting for the version of PS5 and Xbox Series X / S to acquire it. This could mean that the game has a new rise in its sales with the arrival of the new consoles in November.
FIFA 21 was released on October 6 and is available for PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC.
