Back on January 26th, 2018 Monster Hunter: World released for public consumption across PS4 and Xbox One, and within three days the game moved 5 million units. Even with the PC version set to release this fall, Capcom has recently announced that Monster Hunter: World digital sales and shipment has reached over 6 million units.
Monster Hunter: World seems to be doing quite well according to Capcom and other media outlets like Media Create. As noted above, three days after its January 26th launch the action-RPG managed to move 5 million units in digital sales and shipments on January 29th, 2018.
We learn from Capcom that Monster Hunter: World has moved another one million copies as of February 9th, 2018, which can be tracked on capcom.co.jp/ir.
Capcom’s Investor Relation (IR) report notes that Monster Hunter: World set a new record as the fastest Capcom title to ship six million units. Looking over to the latest Media Create sales report, as noted on DualShockers, it reveals that around 1,591,356 units of the six million are retail sales of the PS4 version in Japan.
It’s unclear how the PC version will do when it releases for public consumption, but I’m sure more analytical and statistical reports from media outlets like Media Create or even Capcom will reveal Monster Hunter: World PC numbers when fall rolls around.
Something that is known, though, is that since the first Monster Hunter game, which debuted 14 years ago in 2004, the series has built up a dedicated group of fans that account for a cumulative sales of more than 46 million units worldwide as of February 9th, 2018.
Monster Hunter: World launched on January 26th for PS4 and Xbox One, while a PC version is due out later this year. You can view the full IR report about Monster Hunter: World that Capcom sent out for gamers and fans alike to read on capcom.co.jp/ir.
