Monster Hunter Rise DLC Sunbreak has already shipped 2m copies

The recently-released Sunbreak DLC for Capcom's Monster Hunter Rise has shipped two million sales to date.

That's according to the Japanese publishing giant, which says that the game has hit this sales milestone on July 5th, within its first six days on sale. Sunbreak was released on June 30th for Steam and Nintendo Switch, and was the second highest-selling title on Steam upon its debut.

"Sunbreak is a massive premium expansion for Rise. In addition to new quest ranks, locales, monsters and never-before-experienced hunting actions, players can enjoy new story elements for Rise as well," Capcom wrote.

"Capcom released a demo version prior to launch, garnering praise and attention for the title, which resulted in shipments of over 2 million units globally. The company will continue to leverage its digital strategy going forward, aiming to maximize unit sales with ongoing promotions, including the continued release of free additional content and pricing strategies."

Capcom also revealed that the base game of Monster Hunter Rise has shifted 10 million copies to date, while the Monster Hunter series as a whole has hit 84 million units. The bestselling of the franchise is 2018's Monster Hunter World, which has shipped over 21 million copies.
