Just who wouldn’t be in the Monster Hunter hype? It was announced by CAPCOM on Friday that the latest game of the Monster Hunter franchise, Monster Hunter: World has sold out over more than six million copies (both in physical and in digital) formats worldwide.
This is so far the fast game in the company’s history to have that total amount of copies sold in just a few weeks.
The Monster Hunter franchise began in 2004 and as of Friday, more than 46 million copies of the games were sold from the its first game until the recent.
Monster Hunter: World officially released worldwide on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on January 26. In its first three days, around 5 million copies have been shipped worldwide which officially sets a new record for the franchise.
