Monster Hunter World, the latest entry in the long-running monster hunting franchise, continues to be an incredible success for CAPCOM.
The Japanese publisher announced today that shipments and digital sales for Monster Hunter World have now surpassed 14 million units. The game became CAPCOM's best-selling title ever a long time ago, in March 2018, when it surpassed 7.5 million units.
It has now sold almost twice as much and chances are that milestone will be broken relatively soon with the momentum of the Iceborne expansion, released in early September. Iceborne already shipped over two and half million units and it's not even out on PC yet (the expansion will be out on the platform in January 2020).
Here's an excerpt from the review posted by Kai a few weeks ago, in case you missed it.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is one of the meatiest expansions that’s come to the series to date. While it doesn’t have a G or other letter signifying its importance in the name, Iceborne is as close to the complete experience that players will see for Monster Hunter World. Nigh all of the new content is geared towards experienced players and keep giving them a reason to return to Astera or venture out to Seliana with friends in search of danger and glory. The refinements and upgrades to the combat offer players more versatility in their builds and finally give charge blade users a reason to focus on more than just raw attack. Iceborne has already captured my attention greater than the base game, and while the fights are far more challenging than what I played last year, they’re some of the most rewarding. If you can only pick one RPG in September to dedicate the next couple hundred hours of your life, perhaps you should pick one that’s well done.
