Monster Hunter World passes 25 million sales worldwide

Continuing the companies semiregular updates on the games sales, Capcom has announced that sales for Monster Hunter: World, and Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Master Edition - which comes bundled with the basegame - have now surpassed 25 million copies sold. This number includes both shipments and digital downloads for both SKUs mentioned above. This update comes shortly after the announcement for Monster Hunter Wilds last year, and a recent uptick in activity for Monster Hunter: World as a direct result of Capcom's own attempts to get players to return to the game.

Monster Hunter: World has been Capcom's best-selling title of all time for years at this point, so these new numbers don't mean anything new - but it's striking just how strong the legs for the game's sales have been. Capcom had announced in October 2021 that the game had passed 20 million copies sold, and selling an additional 5 million in the 2 1/2 years since is quite impressive considering that the game was already 3 1/2 years old at the time of that last update. Monster Hunter Wilds has a lot to live up to with both Monster Hunter: World and Monster Hunter: Rise having set a new standard for the series.

Of course, Monster Hunter Wilds won't release until sometime next year. However, Monster Hunter Stories will be receiving a remaster on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC - complete with content that had previously not released outside of Japan - on June 14, which players can certainly look forward to in the near future. The future is certainly looking bright for Capcom's premier RPG franchise.
