Capcom announced the milestone on its website, which was later shared on the official Japanese Monster Hunter World Twitter account. While units shipped isn't the same as units sold, it is an indicator of the game's popularity. Monster Hunter World is currently sitting at the top of the paid game category on Xbox One - beating out PUBG - and is top dog over on the PlayStation store too.
Capcom celebrated the release of Monster Hunter World by offering a £50,000 prize for anyone who could produce evidence of a real-life monster, and while we explored the wilds of South-West England in a bid to find a beast of our own and claim the reward, we came up empty-handed.
The game will continue to receive support through free updates that will include ""new monsters and such" to ensure that players will continue to "play for as long as possible".
