Capcom just announced that Monster Hunter World: Iceborne has shipped over 2.5 million copies worldwide. This number includes digital sales of the expansion which is what owners of the base game would buy, and the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Master Edition that includes the expansion and the base game. Capcom already celebrated crossing 13 million units worldwide for the base game with an excellent item pack reward for all players so it is going to be interesting to see how Monster Hunter World: Iceborne players are rewarded for this new milestone. The first major update has already been announced to release next month including Rajang. Watch the trailer below:
It is worth noting that the 2.5 million sales number should not be added to the sales figures of the base game because it includes the Master Edition. If Capcom reveals sales figures of just the expansion or just the Master Edition, we will know the total units shipped for Monster Hunter World.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is now available on PS4 and Xbox One. It arrives in January 2020 on PC. Read my review of it here.
