It seems the release of Monster Hunter Rise on the PC last week has already paid off - with Capcom announcing the game has now sold more than 8 million units in total worldwide.
Sales of Monster Hunter Rise were around the 7.5 million mark last October. The series, in general, has now shipped 78 million units as of 30th September 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*. Featuring high-resolution 4K support and voice chat functionality for PC, the game provided a fresh hunting experience that garnered praise from players while additionally growing the player base across a wide range of countries and regions. This, combined with sales of the Nintendo Switch version that was released in March 2021, drove global shipments of the game to surpass 8 million units.*Japan Standard Time"
The PC version of Monster Hunter Rise features higher resolution and framerate support and also includes some additional screen filters. This build also got off to a great start on Steam last week - entering the top ten most played games on the platform.
On the horizon is Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak - a new DLC expansion slated for Summer 2022. This should bring even more players when it arrives.
