Capcom credits recent PC release and “continued robust sales” of console versions.
Thanks to the PC version’s release on August 9th, Monster Hunter World has managed to ship 10 million units worldwide, Capcom have announced officially. This, of course, includes the shipments of the console versions, though Capcom confirmed that sales for those sat at 8.3 million even prior to the PC version’s release.
Capcom’s Monster Hunter World set its fair share of records when the PC version launched earlier this month. Unofficial reports put the number of owners at roughly 2 million in the first two days of launch and over 10 million units sold in its lifetime. The publisher didn’t officially confirm the sales number but you can bet it’s close to that mark.
Monster Hunter World originally launched in January 2018 and garnered great critical praise for its translation of the series’ core mechanics to a home console audience. It’s since received numerous updates, including the Behemoth as part of a crossover with Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn.
