Monster Hunter: World continues to be an astounding success for Capcom, as they broke news this morning that the latest entry in the Monster World series has shipped over 7.5 million copies since release in late January!!!
Capcom was excited to share this record breaking news in a PR release from the company:
Monster Hunter: World is the latest entry in the series, and the first new Monster Hunter title for home consoles in nine years. It is also the first title in the series to be given a global simultaneous launch, and was given an ambitious worldwide promotional campaign in order to further build upon its fan base both in Japan and in markets overseas. As a result, Monster Hunter: World has overcome both linguistic and cultural barriers to delight approximately 7 million players worldwide, and has shipped 7.5 million units, making it the best-selling title in company history
Crazy to think about when there has been so many classic titles in Capcom’s history. With the PC version set to release late this year, MH: W‘s record might not be broken for a long, long time.
