In the latest financial report, Capcom have announced that their RPG Monster Hunter World: Iceborne has shipped over 2.8 million copies since its release in September 2019.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne has been a huge success for the publisher Capcom ever since it's release. Just a couple of weeks after the game officially launched on consoles, Capcom confirmed that more than 2.5 million units have been shipped across the world, marking a fantastic start for the snowy expansion.

The sales are continuing to grow and according to Capcom's latest financial report, more than 300,000 units have been shipped since the company initially reported the 2.5 million shipped copies. This means that Monster Hunter World: Iceborne has shipped over 2.8 million copies worldwide on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The results are even more impressive since the big expansion is yet to arrive on the PC platform. It's scheduled to launch sometime in January 2020 and it's safe to say that this will be another huge boost to sale numbers since PC player count is huge and only behind PlayStation 4.

Capcom also confirmed that Monster Hunter: World shipped over 14 million copies in total since it's release back in 2018. However, the company reported a 14 per cent year-over-year decrease in net sales to ¥37.2 billion ($342 million). Capcom say that the reason behind the decline is in their focus on digital over retail goods. Digital sales numbers have increased up to 43.7 per cent year-over-year to ¥9.8 billion ($89.9 million).

Overall, the increase in digital business is due to sales of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, Resident Evil 2 Remake and Devil May Cry 5, Capcom confirmed.
