According to Steam’s stats, Monster Hunter World is the biggest PC release for Capcom and as its EMEA and UK marketing director, Antoine Molant, confirmed, the PC is currently the second largest platform for its latest monster hunting title.
As Molant told PCGamesInsider:
“Without getting into details, it’s the second biggest one for Monster Hunter World amongst all platforms, therefore incredibly important.”
Our guess is that for this particular title, the PC version has surpassed the PS4 and Xbox One versions, something that is quite rare these days (especially for a game debating on our platform).
“While we always try to treat our various audiences the same way, the Monster Hunter World console versions were the lead platforms, and PC had to be released at a later date. This actually helped as the PC version has had its own window for promotion, PR, marketing. Some countries like Germany or Russia also performed extremely well on the PC front. All of this really increased our success in Europe.”
Last month, Capcom’s COO, Haruhiro Tsujimoto stated that the Japanese company considers the PC to be an important platform, and that it will strive to further expand its PC sales.
It’s also worth pointing out that Devil May Cry 5 was the second biggest PC release for Capcom and that Resident Evil 2 Remake was the third (when it comes to Steam online concurrent players).
