Monster Hunter: World will be hitting consoles in the next couple of weeks, but PC gamers will have to wait a little longer as the developer has taken to Twitter saying that the PC port of the game won't be released until Autumn.
The official Twitter account of Monster Hunter tweeted the news yesterday, where they said: "#MHWorld is currently being optimized for PC and is planned for an Autumn 2018 release!"
Now that the developer has nearly an entire year until the promised PC port of Monster Hunter: World, we should expect a much smoother and more optimized game. There have been plenty of multi-platform games that have launched over the last few years that have required not just day-one updates, but 50GB+ updates that fix the PC ports up after they are released.
Ryozo Tsujimoto, Producer of Monster Hunter: World said in a recent interview that gamers can expect a bunch of free updates to the game post-launch, with DLC that includes new monsters, and even more content that will be revealed "later" on in the year.
