Steam reveals 2017's biggest earners, including The Witcher 3, H1Z1 and PUBG

That means there's no actual ranking-we just know roughly where each game placed.

The Witcher III also appears, likely boosted by anniversary sales for the franchise and sheer popularity on PC, and Ark Survival Evolved comes in after launching out of Early Access previous year. Many of these lists are determined by total revenue, but one in particular focuses on games that were most popular among Steam players as well.

Steam is essentially the home of PC gaming at this point, so if you want to see what games did well this year, then there is no better place than Steam's top seller list. As we'd expect, the year started out slow in January and lagged again in the summer, but numerous spring, fall, and winter months featured a bunch of games that sold well out of the gate.

Steam has revealed which games made the most money on its platform in 2017, kind of.

Valve also published a list of the highest-earning new games of 2017, split by month of their release.

However, some other new titles like Divinity: Original Sin 2 and Ghost Recon: Wildlands and a few familiar faces like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Rainbow Six: Siege also worked their way towards the top of the best-sellers list.
