Capcom’s Monster Hunter series continues to make bank, with its 2018 title Monster Hunter: World surpassing over 20 million copies in sales and shipments.
Here’s the full statement on Monster Hunter: World’s latest milestone via the company’s investor report.
“In recent years, Capcom’s promotion of digital sales has enabled it to realize long-term, global sales for its major titles. With the January 2018 release of Monster Hunter: World in particular, Capcom was able to propel the Monster Hunter series to global-brand status with a series-first worldwide simultaneous launch coupled with international promotional activities, establishing the game as Capcom’s best-selling title of all time within a month of its release and being honored with awards the world over.
In the more than three years since the game’s release, in addition to promoting digital sales, Capcom also launched Monster Hunter World: Iceborne (Iceborne, below), a massive premium expansion for the game, as well as a bundle containing both titles, capitalizing on synergies with Iceborne and resulting in prolonged sales that led Monster Hunter: World to achieve a Capcom all-time record of 20 million units shipped.”
You can definitely expect Monster Hunter: Rise to reach those numbers once the PC version comes out next year. For more on the series, check out our guide for the JRPG spin-off Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin.
