Update, March 5: Monster Hunter: World is Capcom's best-selling game ever.
Monster Hunter: World has sold 7.5 million copies in a little over five weeks, making it Capcom's highest-selling game ever. That's pretty impressive for a game coming from a studio that's been around for nearly four decades.
Check out five reasons why you should be excited abount Monster Hunter: World on PC.
Capcom announced in a press release this morning that the figure included both digital and physical sales. 7.5 million copies sold means that Monster Hunter: World has sold more copies than any Resident Evil, Mega Man, or even Street Fighter game.
The figure also puts series-wide Monster Hunter sales at more than 48 million. With a PC version due this Autumn, it seems pretty likely that that figure will top 50 million with relative ease.
