Capcom have officially announced that they are partnering with Timi Studio Group to develop a Monster Hunter game for mobile devices.
Capcom are working on a mobile Monster Hunter game. The Japanese publisher have announced today that they will be teaming up with Tencent's Timi Studio Group, who are known for Call of Duty Mobile and Pokemon Unite.
The game is currently in development and aims to "reproduce the hunting actions that define the Monster Hunter series" according to Capcom.
Here's the official press release:
"Timi Studio Group, part of the Tencent Family of companies and the creative force behind the likes of Call of Duty mobile & Pokemon Unite as well as global hit MOBA titles Arena of Valor & Honour of Kings, are partnering with Capcom to bring the thrill of the hunt to mobile platforms based on the worldwide hit series, Monster Hunter."
At the moment, the details about the game are pretty scarce but Capcom promise to share more details over the coming weeks so perhaps expect to see some trailers and gameplay.
Obviously, there is no mention of the release date just yet as the game is just announced. We don't even have the slightest of hints on when the game could launch but it probably won't be coming anytime soon. Perhaps 2023? At this point, it's really hard to tell.
All in all, it's certainly great that Capcom are expanding Monster Hunter to more platforms but we would like to hear more about the next big Monster Hunter game, something akin to World/Iceborne in size. We know Rise was released recently but a truly big AAA Monster Hunter game is still expected from Capcom. Hopefully, we won't be waiting for too long for that announcement.
