Monster Hunter: World is the Best-Selling Game in Capcom's History, and it Just Keeps Going

Millions are joining the hunt.

Monster Hunter: World is more than a success: It's a runaway hit. According to a press release distributed earlier today, World has shipped 7.5 million units across the globe, including digital sales of the game. Capcom must be as chuffed as a Felyne with a sausage.

Monster Hunter: World began breaking sales records as soon as it shot out the gate, and according to the press release, it's since become Capcom's best-selling title. Capcom credits the game's success with a simultaneous worldwide launch coupled with a marketing campaign that spanned the globe. "As a result, Monster Hunter: World has overcome both linguistic and cultural barriers to delight approximately 7 million players worldwide," the press release states.

"Everything the light touches can be hacked into its component parts."

Monster Hunter: World's good press also likely helped boost sales numbers for the game. World received overwhelmingly positive reviews (including a glowing one from us), and Capcom made some alterations to the series' formula that makes World friendlier to newcomers compared to past titles.

According to Capcom, the Monster Hunter games have sold a cumulative 48 million units. Monster Hunter: World is on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and is coming to PC this fall.
