Monster Hunter World: Iceborne 4 Million

Capcom announced that Monster Hunter World: Iceborne reached a new milestone of 4 million units shipped worldwide. The figure comes from the PS4 and Xbox One versions as well as the recently released PC version.

The Monster Hunter World series itself is now at 15 million units as of January 2, 2020. Since its debut in 2004, the Monster Hunter series now sits at an impressive total of 61 million units in worldwide sales as of January 15, 2020.

Here’s more from Capcom:

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne (MHW:I) is a massive premium expansion for MH:W. The game features a full narrative experience that continues from the ending of MH:W, as well as a vast new area, new monsters, a new difficulty level and a new player mechanic. MHW:I achieved 4 million units shipped as a result of the titles’ January 9 PC release on the globally accessible Steam platform, allowing the game to appeal to a wider fan base spread across a greater number of regions, combined with sales of the home console version of the game released in September 2019.

Moving forward, Capcom plans to carry out a number of initiatives to build excitement for the series across a wider audience, including the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne XR Walk attraction, which is scheduled to run at Universal Studios Japan starting in March 2020, as well as the first Hollywood film adaptation of the Monster Hunter series.

Capcom remains firmly committed to satisfying the expectations of all stakeholders by leveraging its industry-leading game development capabilities in order to create highly entertaining gameplay experiences.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Capcom will reveal its 2020 roadmap plans on January 19. Check our previous report for the latest from last month’s Developer Diary.
