PC was the second largest audience for Monster Hunter World.

That's according to Capcom's EMEA and UK marketing director Antoine Molant, who told PCGamesInsider.biz that as a result, this is an "incredibly important market" for the Japanese publishing giant. 

Molant didn't say which platform PC was second to, but given that Monster Hunter is very popular in Japan - and has done well for itself in the West with this latest release - we'd bet big money that PlayStation 4 was behind the lion's share. We'd imagine that PC comes in ahead of Xbox One, too, due to that platform's extremely low sales in Japan.

"Without getting into details, it’s the second biggest one for Monster Hunter World amongst all platforms, therefore incredibly important," Molant told PCGamesInsider.biz.

Pressed as to how Monster Hunter's PC debut helped Worlds' overall performance, Molant said that the game saw a greater level of success in Europe in particular off the back of this Steam release.

Which puts it between 0.93m and 4.67m according to VGC latest numbers lawl.
SteamSpy puts it at 5m+
Overall great to see a japanese game doing so well on PC.



Also the second worst selling platform.

I like you.



I can't imagine going back to portable Monster Hunter. Going multiplatform, and console has been the best thing for this series since ever. Just waiting until the Ultimate Edition of World.



The sentence below is false.

really curious where we will see the next mainline entry



Monster Hunter is one of those games I think is actually better suited to a console, than a handheld.
Handhelds like the 3DS ect where holding it back in terms of too many aspects, that have vastly improved after it came to the consoles/pc.



Glad to see Capcom actually notices the platform (again, because they said this yonks ago about PC gaming being viable), but I do hope that the next MH game on PC isn't a 6 month bare bones port job. I want to see more quality like DMC 5/RE2 than MHW 6 months.

I hope the thread doesn't devolve into another one of those talks of MH on handheld, or what the next game will be, considering this thread isn't about either of those topics (besides the small voting section, but isn't a part of the news itself).

With DMC5 and RE2R doing great numbers on steam , I think it’s safe to say we will probably see more same day releases as console versions of games
