Capcom’s Monster Hunter franchise is a huge one, so it’s not surprising that when Monster Hunter World was launched, it sold pretty well where it managed to move a whopping 5 million units within the first three days. Now it turns out that it has also become Capcom’s best-selling game of all time.

The company has announced that Monster Hunter World has managed to ship 7.5 million units so far, which takes into account both physical and digital purchases. Prior to this, Resident Evil 5 was considered to be the company’s best-seller at 7.3 million units, but it looks like it has since been surpassed.

We can only imagine that those figures will get even higher over time, especially since Capcom is also expected to eventually bring the game over onto the PC later this fall. As it stands, Monster Hunter World is available on the PS4 and Xbox One. There are no plans to bring the game onto the Nintendo Switch, at least that’s based on a report from last month where Capcom said that doing so would be difficult.

Instead Switch gamers were given Monster Hunter XX which is basically a HD port of the 3DS version of the game that was released in 2016. We’re not sure if the game’s success will see Capcom make a bigger effort to port it onto the Switch, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled.
