Monster Hunter World is Capcom's best-seller of all time

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

A roaring success.

Monster Hunter World has sold more than any other game in Capcom’s history.

Capcom announced that the game has shipped 7.5m copies (combining physical and digital sales), putting it higher than any title in the Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Mega Man and Dead Rising series. The game’s success pushes Monster Hunter series sales up to a total of 48m.

Most impressive is that the World has earned this badge in just five weeks since it launched on January 26. The long running series has always been popular in Japan but has now broken into the Western market too.

Better yet, the PC version of World is yet to come, launching later this year in an autumn (fall) window. If handled well, the PC release could easily push the series sales over 50m.
