Monster Hunter World Is a Commercial Hit, Shipping 7.5 Million Units

Capcom’s best selling game is Monster Hunter World. If you told us that a Monster Hunter game would do incredibly well in the west a few years ago, we might have laughed it off but it is really true.

Monster Hunter World is also critically acclaimed and sits pretty at over 90 in Metacritic. A Capcom game achieving this is pretty surreal in many ways.

These are shipped units but they also tell us that there’s a lot of demand for the game. Capcom did have high expectations for Monster Hunter World expecting to sell 10 million copies but that may actually be possible now.

The game has no microtransaction and is very well made by people who know what they are doing. It was released on the PS4 and Xbox One and will be released on the PC soon. Here are the most popular weapon classes in the game.
