Capcom has announced that Monster Hunter: World's runaway success has reached a new milestone. Including shipments and digital sales of its popular action RPG, the title has now reached a total of six million.

This figure should come as no surprise; the game has been selling well globally on home consoles, and is already the fastest selling entry in the series. In fact, it's the fastest selling game in Capcom's history.

Looks like former Famitsu editor Hirokazu Hamamura's prediction of 10 million lifetime sales wasn't so far off the mark after all.
