Monster Hunter World is Capcom's best selling game in history


Capcom took quite the bet on Monster Hunter World, developing a console iteration of Monster Hunter for a worldwide audience, after it was mainly on handheld devices in the West, and didn't have a massive following like other Capcom franchises, like Street Fighter or Resident Evil. However, it looks like their gamble paid off, as it was not only warmly embraced in Japan, even though Japanese audiences tend to like their Monster Hunter experience on the go, but it also did amazingly in the West, appealing to both veteran hunters as well as new players who have never touched the series before. According to a press release from Capcom, Monster Hunter World has now shipped 7.5 million copies, making it the best selling game in Capcom's history, outdoing the efforts of franchises like Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Mega Man and Devil May Cry. And that's before it launches on PC later this year.
