Capcom has issued a press release this week confirming that their latest game Monster Hunter: World has shipped over 10 million units worldwide following the release of the PC version via Steam and in combination with the home console editions. The role-playing game first launched back in January 2018 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and recently launched on the PC via steam earlier this month on August 10th, 2018.
“The Monster Hunter series consists of hunting action games that pit players against giant monsters in a beautiful natural environment. The series has sparked a social phenomenon known as the “Monster Hunter Craze” by introducing a new kind of communication style for players through cooperative play focused on hunting monsters with their friends. 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 Monster Hunter: World, the latest title in the series, shipping 10 million units, and cumulative sales of the series exceeding 50 million units as of August 20, 2018.
Monster Hunter: World, the best-selling title in company history, achieved this 10 million-unit milestone following the titles’ PC release on the globally accessible Steam platform, allowing the game to appeal to a wider fan base spread across a greater number of regions, and in combination with continued robust sales of the home console version of the game even now, more than six months after its release.
Capcom has strengthened its brands over the years via a fundamental multi-platform strategy, under which it releases games for popular series on a number of platforms. Capcom is committed to continuing to provide games that fully satisfy the needs of a wide breadth of game players worldwide”
