Monster Hunter: World Tops Platinum Title Sales With 18 Million Units

CAPCOM updates the sales of its Platinum titles in the recent charts.

Reaching the Platinum title sales milestone is no easy feat for any form of media. If a music album, song, or book sells 1 million copies, it completes a huge achievement. Sales of video games are one of the most interesting parts of the gaming industry.

Players love to see the competition between titles of major studios and how they fare with the publisher’s own games. The industry is one of the biggest on Earth, so most AAA titles sell in millions. CAPCOM is one of the top companies in the gaming world and a recent report updates the company’s Platinum title sales.

Monster Hunter: World has topped the Platinum games sales chart from CAPCOM in a new update from the company on its official website. It contains the names of all the games from the company which have gone Platinum since their inception. In total, 107 games are present in this comprehensive list, which Monster Hunter: World tops with ease.

CAPCOM’s action roleplaying game deservedly takes the #1 spot with an insane 18 million copies sold since release. No other game from the company has sold more than Monster Hunter: World. That is an outstanding feat in itself, considering the widely popular IPs that the publisher has at its disposal. It has beaten games from franchises like Street Fighter and Resident Evil to take this position on the CAPCOM charts. 

Sales of Monster Hunter: World are no surprise for anyone who has played the game. It’s a brilliant game with a breathtaking open world for the players to explore. Coupling this with the series’ exceptional gameplay and a great narrative, the game’s critical acclaim and sales make total sense.

Other games in the CAPCOM list include some very heavy hitters besides Monster Hunter: World from the company. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is second on this all-time Platinum sales list with 10.8 million copies sold so far. The Monster Hunter and Resident Evil franchises make up most of this top 10 list. Street Fighter II and Street Fighter V take up the #8 and #9 spot on the list. The very recent release in the franchise, Resident Evil Village, finished up this list.
