Monster Hunter World Sold 10.7 Million Copies As Of September 2018; 70% Sold In The West
Monster Hunter World, the latest entry in the series released this year on consoles first and later on PC, is one of the most successful games released by Capcom in recent years. Back in August, the publisher confirmed that the game sold over 10 million units worldwide, and recently it's been confirmed that the game continued to sell well last month.
During the Q&A session for the second quarter of Fiscal Year 2018-2019, Capcom confirmed that Monster Hunter World sold 10.7 million copies as of September 2018, meaning that the game managed to sell 700,000 copies in around a month. Additionally, 70% of the total copies have been sold in North America and Europe, which is even more impressive.
These excellent results are definitely well deserved, as Monster Hunter World is one of the best entries in the series.
Capcom’s first full-fledged Monster Hunter on the latest generation of consoles (with PC to follow later this year) is among one of the strongest sequels to any RPG I’ve ever played. Nearly every quality of life improvement works out in World’s favor and makes the experience more immersive and accessible, rather than trying to dumb it down for a newer audience (I certainly won’t miss trying to knock out a Fatalis with an orange sharpness hammer just because I was an idiot that didn’t bring enough Whetstones). We’re only just in the first month of 2018 and already I can claim that Monster Hunter World might very well be my own personal Game of the Year.
Monster Hunter World is now available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
