Now that it's out on PC and performing insanely well, nothing in recent memory comes close to Monster Hunter World in terms of shattering expectations (counting digital, otherwise only Splatoon 1 rivals it)

Approx. average VGC predictions (before pre-orders opened/IIRC):

Splatoon: 1 million
Lifetime sales: 4.9 million

God of War: 6-7 million
Lifetime projection: 12 million+

Monster Hunter World: 2-2.5 million
Current lifetime projection: 15~ million

To put things into perspective: MHW on PC alone managed to meet the average combined lifetime prediction in a single week.
