Will be interesting to see how Rise performs compared to World on PC, would assume Rise will sell less.

Monster Hunter World sales were actually leaked in the major Capcom hack at the end of 2020.

PS4 - 8.90m
PC - 5.95m
Xbox - 1.79m



Gamerscore:20,000  -  Trophies:3,800 -  Nintendo Awards: -1

My Xbox Series S is my baby. It grew up into an X.

PC sales looking great here, also PS5 almost 5:1 Xbox is brutal!
But yeah, Rise will be luck to reach 2/3 of World, something close to 10M, still amazing sales.



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.

Is at 7.5 now on switch and looks like i will end up similar to world on PS4 if the PC version also sell similar to World PC version it should pass that 2/3 mark easily.

It might surpass World on PS4 seeing as MH World was at 8M total in 7 months where MH Rise hit 7.5M total in six months. Given the 5:1 split it means that PS4 was likely at 6.7M on PS4 during this timeframe. Since PS4 grew to 8.9M the Switch could very well cross the 10M mark.

If MH Rise sells similarly to World on PC then it could end up just one to two million behind MH World. It's honestly a LOT closer than I expected. 

Edit: It looks like I was foolish and was looking at an incorrect date. I was being too hasty. MH: World sold 8.3M by June 30th (which is about five months and four days), whereas MH: Rise sold 7.5M by October 4th (which is about six months and 8 days). Props to Kyuu for pointing this out in this thread and the article. Don't want to misinform.

Again, your data is incorrect:

MHW: 8.3 million in 5 months.

MHR: 7.5 million in 6 months.

(Both are shipped + digital btw).

People that overestimated Rise's legs didn't take into account the "Japan factor" which was skewing numbers in Rise's favor. World is behind in Japan but ahead in the rest of the world where long term sales come from. Rise should see a healthy boost when the "Master Edition" of Sunbreak comes out, which may eventually push it ahead of the lifetime sales of World PS4.

Edit: Now that I think of it... do World's leaked figures include the Master Edition sales? or do the latter only count towards Iceborne figures?

Just to correct myself completely, when I initially looked I was looking at the article date, but it was a fiscal report which is a month behind (It was IGN and I wasn't thinking about it). I gotta be more careful when I'm looking at that stuff, I'll edit my above comment.

No worries man. It's a lot of information to take in, we all made similar mistakes.

PS4 - 8.90m

Xbox - 1.79m

Assuming similar splits (which is most likely accurate), PS4 should be at 9.25M now.

MHW reaching 18.7M results in PS4 being 10M, which should happen.

Since Iceborne requires World,

PS4 had 61% of Iceborne sales, LTD is at 8.2M -> 5M on PS4/5

Total MHW sales on PS4/5 = 14.25M

Holy crap 10m on PlayStation alone would be incredible. There was a thread and many predicted under 3m lifetime. Seems like monster hunter is more popular on PlayStation than it is on Nintendo. Imagine if world was ps4 console exclusive, it wouldve sold more

Yup, goes to show how big the market is for Japanese games on Playstation. Makes sense, MH started of as a Playstation franchise, its best selling SKU in JP is on the PSP and outside is the PS4.

I reckon Sony will do some deal for MHW2.
