March 5, 2018

Capcom just officially announced in a press release that shipments of the recently-launched action-RPG Monster Hunter World have passed another milestone, and it’s a big one.

To be more specific, the game is now over seven and a half million units shipped worldwide including both shipments to retailers and full-game digital downloads on the PlayStation Store and on Xbox Live.

This also means that the Monster Hunter World is now Capcom’s best-selling game ever, passing Resident Evil 5, that shopped 7.3 million units since its release in 2009.

Just a few weeks, we learned that Monster Hunter World passed 1.5 million units sold at retail in Japan in only two weeks, and it’s also the main Monster Hunter release with the highest debut attach rate in the country (despite the fact that it did not launch on a portable platform).


On top of that, it passed five million units shipped worldwide in only three days, and six million in a couple of weeks,  but apparently, the count doesn’t appear to be about to stop just yet.

Monster Hunter World is currently available for PS4 and Xbox One, with a PC version coming later this year in the fall. If you want to learn more about the game, you can read our review.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
