Monster Hunter: World hits sales milestone


Monster Hunter: World has been a juggernaut for Capcom. The game reinvented the Monster Hunter series, finally opening it up to a wider audience. Now, the game has hit another landmark sales number, topping 14 million sales worldwide since launch in January 2018.

This covers both digital sales and physical shipments, the former of which is becoming an increasingly popular purchase method. Last month’s Iceborne expansion has provided a big boost in sales, as the DLC itself hit 2.5 million sales on Xbox One and PS4 in its first week.

The Iceborne expansion isn’t even out yet on PC, which will likely add another sales boost. That is due to launch in January 2020, around the two year anniversary of the initial launch. Iceborne performed well critically too, gaining plenty of publication accolades.

This all adds to an impressive few years for the Japanese games company. Resident Evil has got back on track with Resi 7 and the remake of Resident Evil 2 earlier this year. The first Devil May Cry game in over five years; DMC5, also performed very well critically upon its release this March.

Monster Hunter: World and DMC5 are available in Xbox Game Pass for console, for those who haven’t tried out either recent Capcom title.
