Monster Hunter: World has launched on PS4 and Xbox One, and the general consensus is that it’s a great game. We gave it a very high score in our review, and other outlets are singing its praises, also.
However, not all great games sell well. Some titles can release at a bad time, fail due to poor marketing, or go ignored for a variety of other reasons. Happily, Monster Hunter: World does not appear to be one of those games.
Since its January 26 launch, Monster Hunter: World has shipped over five million units. According to Capcom, that’s more units shipped in the first three days of launch, than any other game in the franchise. This includes digital downloads.

1 – Monster Hunter: World
2 – Dragon Ball Fighterz
3 – Call of Duty: WWII
