One of the best games I’ve ever played, Monster Hunter: World, has sold over 25 million units globally. The sales milestone marks a new Capcom record-high for single-title sales as the Monster Hunter Series celebrates its 20th anniversary. In total, the cumulative sales of the series have topped 97 million units as of December 31, 2023. Many argue that Monster Hunter: World was the title that brought the series to the masses. It was the first simultaneous worldwide launch for the franchise, and improved accessibility contributed to it becoming Capcom’s best-selling title of all time within a month of its release.

The Iceborne expansion for Monster Hunter: World was released in September 2019 for PlayStation and Xbox, followed by a PC release in January 2020. The next entry, Monster Hunter Rise, launched on the Switch in March 2021, on PC in January 2022, and on PlayStation and Xbox in January 2023. Although not as successful in sales as Monster Hunter: World, it remains the second best-selling game in the series, with around 14 million units sold.

The next mainline entry, Monster Hunter Wilds, was announced in December 2023 and is expected to launch sometime in 2025. It’s currently in development for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
