Monster Hunter World PC Sales Have Exceeded Capcom’s Expectations, Cancels Several Projects At Vancouver Studio


Capcom has announced that the sales for the PC version of Monster Hunter: World have exceeded the company’s expectations.

As Capcom stated:

“Regarding Capcom’s full-year business forecast, due to factors including the continued robust performance of the PC version of Monster Hunter: World exceeding the company’s expectations since its release on the Steam platform in August, following the blockbuster performance of the title after its initial release in January of this year, the forecast for Capcom’s consolidated business results remains the same as what was projected at the financial results announcement on May 8, 2018.”

Hopefully the undisclosed, yet good sales figures for Monster Hunter: World PC means that more games from the series will end up getting a PC release in the future.

The publisher also announced the termination of several projects ongoing at their Vancouver studio (previously Blue Castle Games and known for developing Dead Rising 2, 3 and 4). Capcom now expects to record losses from the termination of development projects of approximately 4.5 billion yen under the cost of sales in its consolidated financial results for the six months of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019.
