Monster Hunter World Updated Event Schedule 8

Capcom’s Monster Hunter World was already a stellar success when it was available only for consoles. However, thanks to the PC release in August, the title has gone on to ship over 10 million units, according to the company’s recent earnings report. Though Capcom already confirmed the 10 million figure in August, it recently revealed that this was the first title in the company’s history to achieve this feat.

Net sales saw a 28.5 percent increase from the first fiscal half of 2018, hitting 43.3 million Yen for the six months ending September 30th. The company’s operating income hit 10.5 million Yen, the highest in company history for the end of a second quarter. Besides Monster Hunter World, Capcom also reported profits from Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch.

Furthermore, the company reported that titles like Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection and Mega Man X Legacy Collection are also performing well. The latter is good news for Mega Man X, fans and could potentially catalyze the release of a brand new Mega Man X title. Overall, Capcom’s forecast for the fiscal year ending March 31st 2019 is the same as its projection announced in May 2018.
