After several months of waiting, Monster Hunter: World was released on Steam today and has already become the digital platform's biggest launch of 2018.
It seems as though Capcom's gamble to bring Monster Hunter: World to a Western audience worked out based on concurrent player numbers, becoming the biggest launch for a Japanese game ever on Steam, as well as the best debut for a Capcom game on Steam.
Monster Hunter: World has hit many other notable milestones since launching on consoles back in January, becoming Capcom's fastest-selling title of all time.
It even sold a record 5 million copies within the first three days of launch, and the publisher recently attributed its most profitable first quarter in history thanks to the performance of Monster Hunter: World.
