5m now in 10 days meaning it moved another 1m in the following week.

I believe this already makes it the best selling Monster Hunter among those that were only released on a single platform.  Obviously, it still has a long way to go to get near MH World numbers.  However, after that Capcom has the next best selling MH at 4.9m, Monster Hunter Freedom 3 on PSP.

Rise is definitely getting a lot of benefit from World's popularity.

And the Switch's. Two-punch combo for sure.



6m now.

over 10M, at best 12M for PC+switch.



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

What changed in World that made the series so popular in the West?



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.

Quality graphics, good online multiplayer non reliant in local coop for the first time, released in both consoles and PC, less grinding nature, more accessible encounters, much less boring to play single player 

And good marketing and advertising, easier to get when you have a good partnership with Sony 

But to be fair, before asking why World become popular in West we need to ask why Monster Hunter was even popular in Japan in first place. You can pretty much say the game was a flop everywhere but Japan, so it's not like MH wasn't only popular in West it wasn't popular anywhere besides Japan 

I guess the very high number of handheld users in urban areas along with the tribal/Social mindset where you need to play whatever your friends are playing mitigated the lack of a good single player campaign, as such MH was before anything a social game

"World" isn't really a social game, at least not in the same way as previous installments. The lack of sales in Japan (compared to other entries) reflects that. 

Different selling points-> Different advertising for a different kind of customers -> Good Reviews and World of Mouth -> Good Sales 



Since the Switch is still selling very well I could see this game to sell over 20 million units.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

So around 3 more on switch and ~3 on PC?



nah, most sales on switch. Perhaps 4-5M SW ~ 0.5-2M PC.

Definitely impressive.  This breakdown for World was posted earlier in this thread:

PS4 version 8.7 mi
PC version 5.9 mi 
Xbox version 1.8 mi

It will be interesting to see how Rise's sales compare to the PS4 version (8.7m) and also PS4+XB1 (10.5m) of World.  It's making really good progress so far in not too long a period of time.
