Monster Hunter World PS4 PlayStation 4 1

All the way back when Capcom announced Monster Hunter: World for the PlayStation 4, there was some scepticism aimed at the Japanese publisher’s scaly executives for bringing the brand to console and PC as opposed to portables where the series had previously proved popular. Fortunately, the success of the decision can no longer be understated, as the release has sold an eye-watering 16 million units to date.

Perhaps most impressive of all is that expansion Monster Hunter World: Iceborne has itself sold 5.8 million units to date, and that’s up 600k in the publisher’s most recent quarter alone. The Monster Hunter series as a whole now sits at 64 million units to date, and the franchise’s inevitable PlayStation 5 follow-up will only bolster that figure further.
