Monster Hunter: World Ships 7.5 Million Copies to Become Capcom's Best-Selling Game

Richard Walker

Capcom has announced that Monster Hunter: World has now become its best-selling game of all-time, reaching 7.5 million units sold, beating previous Capcom best-seller Resident Evil 5. This follows Monster Hunter: World being dubbed Capcom's 'fastest-selling' game, having shipped 6 million copies as of last month.

Previous Capcom record holder, Resident Evil 5, had shifted 7.2 million copies up to September 2017, which makes Monster Hunter: World the company's best seller by a fair margin. The numbers take into account both digital and physical retail sales on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The success of Monster Hunter: World means that since the first Monster Hunter debuted 14 years ago, the series has now racked up cumulative sales of more than 48 million units worldwide, as of today, 5th March 2018. "Monster Hunter: World has overcome both linguistic and cultural barriers to delight approximately 7 million players worldwide, and has shipped 7.5 million units, making it the best-selling title in company history," reads Capcom's announcement.

Monster Hunter: World launched globally on 26th January for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and you can check out our review here.

  • Great game but you can spin you shipped 100 million copies it dont mean you sold that many. Boast about actual figures sold like Sony do with the PS4 and not like Microsoft who also use shipped....when companies use shipped figures its mostly for spin to try drum up sales.
  • good on them. they could have loot boxed and microtransactioned the shit outta this game and they didnt.
  • See what happens Capcom when you release it for other platforms and not just the 3Ds and Nintendo only...
  • Deserved!
  • @2 Would not have sold nearly as much this quickly if they nickle and dimed the game.
  • final fight.. where is it? breath of fire captain commando chaos legion demon crest god hand... where are all these games that made capcom great? they shouldnt just make ONE and then NO MORE... i want CONTINUED games.. to see how they are now in life.. you know.. like when you google celebrities from the 90s or something and how they look now after not seeing them for nearly 20 years... i wanna see their upgrade and or how they have changed and or aged...
  • This game is amazing and I'm happy I gave it a chance, 100 hours in and still having a blast. Well deserved Capcom.
  • Not surprising, even though it took them over a decade to bring the Monster Hunter to the Big Consoles in the West.
  • Really, will pick this up!
