Monster Hunter: World is a huge hit for Capcom.
It released 2 months ago back in January and it’s a huge commercial success. It’s a game that brings back the epic monster battles that only a few versions have been able to capture effectively. Capcom has announced that MHW is their best-selling game- of all time.
It’surpassed their Resident Evil 5 title which was the former best-selling game at 7.3m million copies. MHW sold 7.5 units and is still selling like hotcakes.
In a press release, Capcom stated that worldwide sales of the game are the best-to-date. Of course, shipping the game and selling it are to be distinguished, which Capcom states:
“Monster Hunter: World has overcome both linguistic and cultural barriers to delight approximately 7 million players worldwide, and has shipped 7.5 million units”
So far, Monster Hunter: World has sold like crazy. Last month, it sold 6m units since launch and it’s still going strong making it a huge commercial success. It was released at the same time worldwide so everyone got in on the action simultaneously. It’s also the first game to be available on a console in almost decade. It’s good that they’re branching out from the handheld devices. Capcom states:
“Since the first Monster Hunter title made its debut 14 years ago in 2004, the series has attracted a dedicated fan base, and overall grown into a mega-hit with cumulative sales of more than 48 million units worldwide as of March 5, 2018.”
MHW has done an excellent job on recapturing what was once started. It’s good to have them back. If you haven’t checked out the game yet, you should. It’s an epic adventure that no other game can reenact. It’s a one-of-a-kind game.
