Monster Hunter World: Iceborne digital sales and shipments reach 2.5 million

That's a lot of copies of Monster Hunter, you crazy fans!


Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is performing fantastically, as expected, surpassing 2.5 million units for both total worldwide shipments and digital sales.

That number also includes the vanilla edition of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne as well as Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Master Edition sees. The game launched on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide on September 6, though the Xbox One version is only available currently in North America and Europe. The entirety of the Monster Hunter series has gone over 58 million units as far as today, September 13, in terms of sales. 

It looks like the Monster Hunter series as a whole has been doing well ever since Monster Hunter World debuted and revitalized the line of games, so we'll likely see these kinds of numbers continue to rise. Capcom is having a grand old time because of it – and that probably means more Monster Hunter is going to be in the works soon enough.

Shacknews' Bill Lavoy offered up his impressions on the game. Here's what he had to say about it.

"Monster Hunter World: Iceborne does exactly what it’s supposed to do. It builds on everything that came before it without losing any of that Monster Hunter World charm. Players that love the base game will love this expansion, and if it wasn’t for you before, it’s not for you now. It’s got as many moving parts as it always has, but new locations, hubs, gadgets, weapons, armor, layered armor, monsters and monster variants all combine to enhance the experience. It’s like installing a new air conditioner in your house; it still feels like home, but it’s a hell of a lot colder now."
