Monster Hunter: World Reaches 14 Million Sales Worldwide

Earlier today, news site Gematsu reported that Monster Hunter: World has now sold over 14 million copies worldwide. This takes into account physical shipments and digital sales. It comes from Monster Hunter’s official Japanese Twitter account.

It’s no surprise that Capcom’s latest monster-slaying title has reached this milestone. Monster Hunter: World exceeded expectations when it sold 5 million copies in just its first 3 days of release, even for a games industry giant like Capcom, this was an achievement. It also secured Monster Hunter: World as one of Capcom’s fastest-selling games of all time. Not only that, Monster Hunter: World is currently Capcom’s best-selling game of all time. Its 14 million units almost double that of Capcom’s second best-seller, Resident Evil 5, which sits at an estimated 7.5 million units sold.

 

 

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, the game’s latest expansion, isn’t doing too shabby either, reaching around 2.5 million sales since its release on September 6th.

Monster Hunter World’s success is widely down to its accessibility, especially in comparison to other games in the franchise. Monster Hunter: World launched for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and a few months later, it even came to PC. The areas became seamless, movement was much less restrictive, and you didn’t have to own a Nintendo console to play. Monster Hunter has always

had its hardcore fans, but World managed to find a balance that eased off on the unforgiving mechanics but kept the unique style of gameplay.

Capcom isn’t slowing down on the content for Monster Hunter: World either. The upcoming update adds Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy from Resident Evil 2, another one of the publisher’s heavy hitters.

Are you one of the few people who hasn’t picked up Monster Hunter: World. Let us know why down in the comments!
