Capcom today announced that Monster Hunter Rise for Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam) has shipped 8 million units worldwide. Unfortunately, though, Capcom did not reveal the exact sales per platform.
As the press release reads, the Monster Hunter series consists of hunting action games that pit players against giant monsters in a beautiful natural environment. Beginning with the first title in 2004, the series has since grown into a global phenomenon with cumulative sales of the series exceeding 78 million units shipped as of September 30, 2021.
Monster Hunter Rise was released for Steam on January 12th, 2022. Featuring high-resolution 4K support and voice chat functionality for PC, the game provided a fresh hunting experience that garnered praise from players. Furthermore, it increased the player base across a wide range of countries and regions. This, combined with sales of the Nintendo Switch version, drove global shipments of the game to surpass 8 million units.
Capcom now plans to release Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak in Summer 2022. Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is a massive premium expansion for this new MH game.
