Forums - Gaming Discussion - MHW over 10m sold already

Officially the ps4 and xbox version has sold a staggering 8.3m units in the 6+ months it's been out. However reports from steam suggest it had a good pc debut of over 2m sales. Monster Hunter has just entered the big leagues. I've no doubt it will hit 15m+ too.

 

So obviously there's a lot of crow to be served to those who doubted 10m but also to those who doubted the PC release would have an impact. I remember people were naming alternatives on pc that were getting popular in it's absence suggesting they would steal monster hunters thunder. 

 

No chance. There's only 1 monster Hunter! Congrats capgods!

That’s a great number. Give the person who saw the light and brought MH back to Playstation a raise.

Amen. Playing Monster Hunter Tri on the wii gave me eye cancer.



I always thought it would do very well on PC. Really good sales!

To think, it was the best selling monster hunter when it passed 4.9m, and the best selling capcom game when it passed 7.4m. And now it's at 10.3m+ and still heading up!

Bringing Monster Hunter multi-platform is the biggest success story, with sales like that they should never go back.

I always thought that bringing this game exclusively is dumb.  It's obvious this can have fans among multiple platforms. Now, bring it to Switch too, and this will also be the best-sellling MonHun in Japan too.

Switch isnt powerfull enough to run it.... sad but likely true.

Actually if that were the case, the game wouldve only sold around 4M. Thank the heavens for Xbox and PC for the added 6m sales.

As a programmer I say it is possible - with cutbacks like Wolfenstein or Doom. It is more a question of: how much cutbacks and how much work to port. I think sales should justify that in the case of MonHun.

You mean halving the framrate? 13fps fun! xD

The next game should be built from the ground up to support ALL systems, including switch. Porting MHW isn't feasible, just as porting Witcher 3 or Farcry 5 isn't.

Yeah, I don’t think the Xbox One version sold as much as the PS4 version. Of the reported 8.3M, the PS4 probably sold 7M.
