Capcom has had an amazing couple of years. After a disappointing beginning to this generation, the Japanese developer and publisher has scored a trio of hits recently with the Resident Evil 2 Remake, Devil May Cry V, and Monster Hunter: World. All three of these games have managed to be both critical and financial successes. And it’s that last game that we have news of today. Capcom has just announced that they have now shipped out more than 15 million copies of Monster Hunter: World. The impressive figures don’t just end there, though. They also shared that Iceborne, the major expansion pack for the game, has sold more than 4 million copies.
Monster Hunter: World is the first game in the series to come to the Xbox platform. While we would never suggest that the game’s success is down to its availability on Xbox One, being a true multi-platform title can’t hurt the sales figures. If you want to try the game out and are an Xbox Game Pass subscriber, you can download the game right now onto your Xbox One. If you want to know more about the game, you can check out the launch trailer for the game below along with the official description –
Welcome to a new world! Take on the role of a hunter and slay ferocious monsters in a living, breathing ecosystem where you can use the landscape and its diverse inhabitants to get the upper hand. Hunt alone or in co-op with up to three other players, and use materials collected from fallen foes to craft new gear and take on even bigger, badder beasts!
