Releasing at the start of this year, Monster Hunter: World proved to be the most easily accessible entry in the series yet. It featured beautiful environments to explore on the PS4, and not having loading screens to segment off different areas of the map gave hunts a better sense of fluidity. The game released on PC earlier this month, allowing even more series newcomers and veterans to get in on the fun.
Since then, Capcom has announced that the game has officially shipped 10 million units globally, and this includes digital sales.
‘Since the first Monster Hunter title made its debut 14 years ago in 2004, the series has attracted a dedicated fan base, and overall grown into a mega-hit, with Monster Hunter: World, the latest title in the series, shipping 10 million units, and cumulative sales of the series exceeding 50 million units as of August 20, 2018.
Monster Hunter: World, the best-selling title in company history, achieved this 10 million-unit milestone following the titles’ PC release on the globally accessible Steam platform, allowing the game to appeal to a wider fan base spread across a greater number of regions, and in combination with continued robust sales of the home console version of the game even now, more than six months after its release.’
The game is now available on PS4 and PC.
