We used a combination of 2019 publisher financial reports and figures released by SuperData to gather the earnings per game, split by add-on and game revenue. When both figures weren't released for individual games, we used the publishers overall split of add-on vs game revenue for 2019, and the figures which were published, to estimate the remaining earnings.
