Helldivers 2 loses its status as highest-grossing game on Steam charts for first time in six weeks

The ongoing Spring Sale has helped many older games return to the top positions on the Steam charts. Here are the best-selling titles on the platform by gross revenue over the past seven days.

Steam charts: Helldivers 2 dethroned after dominating Steam charts for six straight weeks

Helldivers 2

Counter-Strike 2 was the highest-grossing game on Steam for the week of March 12-19, dethroning Helldivers 2. The co-op action game from Arrowhead Game Studios has been a chart-topper since its launch on February 8, but its six-week winning streak has now ended.

It is worth noting that Helldivers 2 is still the leader among premium titles, but the upcoming Dragon’s Dogma 2 is hot on its heels after climbing three positions from the previous week and taking 3rd place overall. Capcom’s action RPG will come out on March 22, so it is interesting to see whether it will be able to top the charts.

Below are the top 10 premium games by gross revenue for the week of March 12-19 (excluding F2P titles and Steam Deck):

  1. Helldivers 2
  2. Dragon’s Dogma 2
  3. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
  4. Baldur’s Gate 3
  5. Dead by Daylight
  6. Cyberpunk 2077
  7. EA Sports FC 24
  8. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III
  9. Red Dead Redemption 2
  10. Forza Horizon 5

Thanks to huge discounts, several older games saw huge spikes in sales. For example, Rainbox Six Siege jumped 21 positions to #6 overall. Ubisoft’s multiplayer shooter, which is currently sold at just $3.99 (80% off), also broke its all-time CCU record by peaking at over 201k concurrent players over the weekend.

Dead by Daylight (60% off) climbed 29 places to #8 overall, while Cyberpunk 2077 (50% off) jumped from 56th to 9th spot.

Final Fantasy Remake Integrade returned to the charts at #18 overall thanks to a 50% discount and a new wave of player interest amid the launch of FFVII Rebirth. Other titles that came back to the top 50 highest-grossing games on Steam include Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (#26), Total War: Warhammer III (#36), It Takes Two (#38), Diablo IV (#44), Battlefield 2042 (#45), Persona 5 Royal (#46), and Dave the Diver (#48).
