February 4, 2019 Monster Hunter: World sales have topped 11 million worldwide.
Monster Hunter: World is sitting pretty as Capcom’s best-selling game ever, with last August’s launch on PC pushing the game over the impressive milestone of ten million copies sold. That astronomical start hasn’t let up, however, as the game has now sold more than eleven million copies.
That information comes from Capcom’s third quarter 2018 financial results, which state that “sales of Monster Hunter: World continue to grow, with shipments now exceeding 11 million units cumulatively.” That continued success has helped Capcom to its highest third quarter profits in the company’s history.
Previous estimates had suggested that MHW PC sales were over two million, but a report from SuperData cemented that that number. It’s tricky to track exactly how many copies the game has sold, but purely by player count, Monster Hunter: World quickly became the biggest new Steam game of 2018, and remains Capcom’s best-selling game – despite the best efforts of Resident Evil 2.
It promises to be a busy few months for Monster Hunter: World fans. The Witcher’s Geralt of Rivia is set to make an appearance in the game early this year.
After that, a massive expansion, dubbed Monster Hunter: World Iceborne is heading to consoles later this year (the PC release will likely follow in 2020).
