Monster Hunter World had a strong start on PC as it managed to sell through 2 million copies. It opened with a smashing 1 million and above and then quickly fast-tracked to 2 million sales despite some controversy surrounding its release. Now Capcom has made the first official comment on how the sales of the game meet the expectations of the company.
Capcom announced the cancellation of several development projects at Capcom Vancouver and also shared the following tidbit regarding the sales of Monster Hunter World and their financial outlook ahead.
Regarding Capcom’s full-year business forecast, due to factors including the continued robust performance of the PC version of Monster Hunter: World exceeding the company’s expectations since its release on the Steam platform in August, following the blockbuster performance of the title after its initial release in January of this year, the forecast for Capcom’s consolidated business results remains the same as what was projected at the financial results announcement on May 8, 2018.
Monster Hunter World launched in early August for the PC. It suffered from some issues related to the online multiplayer but still managed to draw in a huge crowd on PC. The game had already sold through 8 million copies before the launch of the PC version, and it has now surpassed 10 million after PC release.
Monster Hunter World is available now for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
