Developer and publisher Capcom recently celebrated Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion crossing 5 million units shipped. The downloadable content released back in September 2019 and received significant updates regularly since then. The updates ranged from addressing critical performance issues where players reported 100% CPU usage to add new quests, items, monsters, moves, and much more for players to enjoy. The developer can slightly attribute this 2.5 million additional unit to the PC community, since September 2019's 2.5 million units mark only featured the PS4 and Xbox One platforms.
The studio always expressed its intent to grow its Monster Hunter World community, and with expansions like Iceborne, it was bound to happen. The title managed to officially surpass 5 million units worldwide as of January 2nd, marking the first title in Capcom's history to achieve this record-high sales number. These additional two million units were accumulated over the course of roughly eight months since the studio reported crossing 13 million units for Monster Hunter World. At the time, the players were greeted with a special login bonus, granting them an Attack Jewel, thirteen Appreciation Tickets, thirteen Silver Eggs, and more goodies for them to enjoy. However, Capcom doesn't really have anything to offer players this time around.
In the same announcement, Monster Hunter Riders, the studio's iOS and Android title based in the Monster Hunter universe managed to more than 3 million downloads in just a little over a month since its February 2020 release. Capcom promised its fans and supporters they will continue to support all their titles, and grow the title's franchise, especially with its Hollywood film adaptation scheduled for a September 2020 release. Everything is susceptible to delays considering the current state of the world under the COVID-19 pandemic.
