Monster Hunter: World may have sold over 2 million copies on PC

Monster Hunter: World has sold 10 million units worldwide according to Capcom.

In July, the publisher reported 7.5 million copies shipped during the game’s first two months of sale.

Since then, the game has launched on PC to overwhelming success, making the platform a likely cause of that final 2.5 million sale boost. Monster Hunter: World now boasts worldwide sales of 10 million across all platforms.

Monster Hunter: World has been a regular feature in the weekly Steam Top Ten. The latest in the dinosaur-fighting franchise has since become Japan’s biggest game on Steam yet, overtaking even Dark Souls 3.

The milestone comes in spite of Monster Hunter: World losing a place on the Chinese market after regulators pulled the title from sale seven days after release. Tencent, who distributed the title through WeGame in the region, claim regulators received a number of unspecified complaints on the release.

Tencent shares dipped three per cent thanks to the pull, which came as part of a nation-wide block on approvals affecting China’s game-makers.
