After months of waiting since PlayStation 4 release, gamers finally get to see Monster Hunter: World on Steam. And as expected, the game got so much hype.
Only one week after its release, Monster Hunter: World has had 312,864 concurrent players, according to Steam’s stats taken on August 14th, 2018, and is expected to grow steadily in the upcoming weeks.
With that total number of players, the game has passed Grand Theft Auto V, Tom Clancy’s The Division, and Warframe on Steam.
Here is also a fun fact for you. Monster Hunter: World is the biggest launch for a Japanese game ever on Steam, as well as the best debut for a Capcom game on Steam.
The game was adapted from Monster Hunter series which was introduced in 2004. The series consists of hunting action games that pit players against giant monsters in a beautiful natural environment. Since the first release, the series has had a significant growth of fans. On February 9, 2018, Monster Hunter series had over 46 million sales worldwide.
Monster Hunter: World is the newest game in the series that has made the most success. Capcom announced earlier last month that the game has shipped 5 million units in just 3 days. Bear in mind, this number accounts for digital sales and the number of units shipped to retailers (but not necessarily sold to consumers).
Monster Hunter World becomes the most fastest selling Capcom game ever. The company announced it through its official blog confirming 6 million units shipped in just two weeks. So, what's its secret to success?
For the PlayStation 4, Monster Hunter: World becomes the fastest selling Capcom game ever. The company announced it through its official blog confirming 6 million units shipped in just two weeks.
The marketing of Capcom to delay the release of the game on PC is a great strategy. When players seem to decrease due to the time that has gone by, they turned it around with the release on Steam.
