It seems that Monster Hunter: World is still gathering steam as publisher Capcom announced this morning that the game has shipped more than 10 million units.

The latest instalment in the popular Monster Hunter series has been available on console for a number of months now and has seen a very successful run. However, when the game landed on PC in early August it began to break records. On its opening day, Monster Hunter: World saw the largest number of concurrent players for a new release on Steam in 2018 so far with a whopping 239,779 people playing. These sizable numbers on PC are backed up by the fact that the title had already shipped 8.3 million copies by June 30; seeing a significant increase in shipments since the PC release.

Originally released in January of this year, the immensely popular Monster Hunter: World is an action RPG following in the gigantic footsteps that the series has been making since it first made an appearance back in 2004. It sees players taking the fight to enormous beasts and gathering resources in a gorgeous online world. Monster Hunter: World is now the best-selling game in Capcom history.

Monster Hunter: World is out now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
