Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) today announced that Monster Hunter: World for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One*1 has shipped 7.5 million units worldwide (including digital download sales). A PC version is to be released at a later date.
*1: See Product Details for region availability

The Monster Hunter series consists of hunting action games that pit players against giant monsters in a beautiful natural environment. The series has sparked a social phenomenon known as the "Monster Hunter Craze" by introducing a new kind of communication style for players through cooperative play focused on hunting monsters with their friends. Since the first Monster Hunter title made its debut 14 years ago in 2004, the series has attracted a dedicated fan base, and overall grown into a mega-hit with cumulative sales of more than 48 million units worldwide as of March 5, 2018.

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.

Capcom remains firmly committed to satisfying the expectations of all users by leveraging its industry-leading game development capabilities in order to create highly entertaining gameplay experiences.

Insane success. Monster Hunter in 2 months sold as much as horizon did in 12 months. Crazy success. 10m is a lock. It will probably do 8m+ on ps4 alone.



Has the game been discounted yet on psn or live? Just wondering if all these sales are at full price?

If so you're looking at around €450m in revenue so far. It will probably do 600m before it's even discounted and 1BN+ Ltd when you include revenue from in game transactions. This was the best financial decision capcom ever made.



7.5 million in less than 6 weeks... I'm speechless.



Nothing stops this train, 10 million will be easy.
