It seems the release of Monster Hunter Rise on the PC last week has already paid off – with Capcom announcing that the game has now sold more than 8 million units in total worldwide.
Sales of the Monster Hunter Rise were around 7.5 million in October last year. The series has generally now shipped 78 million units per year. September 30, 2021. Here’s what Capcom had to say in a PR about the latest milestone:
“Monster Hunter Rise was released for Steam, a PC platform with a broad global user base, on January 13, 2022 *. With high-resolution 4K support and voice chat functionality for PC, the game provided a fresh hunting experience that garnered praise from gamers while the player base grew across a wide range of countries and regions. This, combined with the sale of the Nintendo Switch version released in March 2021, caused global shipments of the game to exceed 8 million units. * Japan Standard Time “
The PC version of Monster Hunter Rise has higher resolution and frame rate support and also includes some additional screen filters. This build also got off to a great start on Steam last week – and entered the top ten most played games on the platform.
On the horizon is Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak – a new DLC expansion scheduled for summer 2022. This should bring even more players when it arrives.
