MHW Scores Megabucks for Capcom with 5M Copies Shipped

MHW Scores Megabucks for Capcom with 5M Copies Shipped - MMORPG.com

Capcom has scored some serious cash with Monster Hunter World. The game has shipped more than five million units since it launched last week. This includes digital downloads of the game in the three days following its launch. This makes MHW the best-selling game in the series that has launched on PS4 for the first time in a decade and the first-time ever launch on any XBox.

Capcom plans to continue to support MHW through the regular release of DLC and will be releasing the game for PC later in 2018. In addition, the series is even coming to the big screen through a Hollywood film adaptation.

Monster Hunter: World is the latest entry in the series and is the first new Monster Hunter title for home consoles in nine years. Players step into the role of a researcher, whose team travels to an unexplored, new continent and become hunters. This game offers significant innovations to the series, including seamless transitions between map areas as well as smooth, on-the-fly actions, displayed damage points dealt to monsters, and the ability to join mid-quest when playing online. What's more, in order to further build upon its fan base both in Japan and in markets overseas, this is the first title in the series to be given a global simultaneous launch. As a result, Monster Hunter: World has shipped 5 million units, the largest shipment a title in this series has achieved in the first three days following release. Capcom plans to support the sales growth of the title over the long term through a number of free downloadable updates, which will include additional monsters among other content.
