The 20 million figure is up from 17.3 million sold as of the end of June, so clearly, the game continues to move units at a solid pace.

Capcom's second best-selling game is Resident Evil 7, which just passed 10 million shipments. This shows just how big a gulf there is between Monster Hunter World and everything else.

Another game, Monster Hunter Rise for Nintendo Switch, has sold 7.5 million copies as of September 24 to become yet another massive success story for the series. A PC edition is coming in January 2022. Capcom plans to expand Rise further with its Sunbreak expansion in 2022.
