According to Capcom’s latest financial earnings report, the Monster Hunter series has officially crossed “100 million units in sales cumulatively.”

It has now joined the likes of Resident Evil, which Capcom also reported earned 157 million units in cumulative sales by March 31, 2024.

Capcom’s new report also revealed solid performances for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne and Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. Respectively, they have reached 12.6 million and 7.7 million units sold in their FY24/3 results. So, Monster Hunter sales continue to thrive.

Capcom just recently revealed that Monster Hunter: World reached 25 million units sold as of last March. It marks a major success for the franchise and suggests that Monster Hunter Wilds should perform well.

Capcom first announced Monster Hunter Wilds, the next big installment in the core series, during The Game Awards 2023. At this time, there is no concrete release date for the game.

The new earnings report only reiterates that Monster Hunter Wilds will launch in 2025. At the very least, development on the anticipated sequel still seems to be on track. Capcom plans to reveal more about Monster Hunter Wilds sometime this summer.

The Monster Hunter series celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Although the main series won’t enjoy a new sequel to line up with that, Monster Hunter Stories is coming to Nintendo Switch in 2024.

Capcom’s earnings report looks bright, supporting the company’s optimistic decision to raise starting salaries in fiscal year 2025.
