Capcom's new online-based Monster Hunter: World is a runaway success that keeps breaking sales milestones.

Monster Hunter: World has now amassed 7.5 million units in combined digital sales and shipments, Capcom today confirmed. This follows last month's news of 6 million shipments worldwide, signalling final sales could balloon even farther. Remember that shipments aren't technically sales to consumers and represent sell-in and not sell-through, but digital sales are direct to gamers.

 

As of now, with this combined figure, Monster Hunter: World sits as the best-selling game in Capcom's history. The company has a handy list of Platinum Titles, or games that have sold more than 1 million copies worldwide, and the previous record holder was Resident Evil 5 which has sold 7.3 million units worldwide.

 

Capcom will likely announce the full lifetime-to-date sales figures for the game during its fiscal year earnings report, which should drop sometime in April or so.
