After months of careful development and tweaking, Capcom is keeping its promise to release Monster Hunter: World's PC port this year. The massively popular online game will be available on Steam on August 9, 2018--just six months after the console version's launch--but will have a somewhat staggered content rollout. The game's PC flavor won't have immediate access to extra content such as the Deviljho monster hunt but Capcom affirms the two versions will eventually be on equal footing.

 

Capcom has enjoyed incredible success with the online monster hunting game, and the company understands that optimizing the PC port is integral for the live title's long-term profitability.

 

With over 8 million worldwide shipments Monster Hunter: World is now the best-selling game in Capcom's storied history, and if engagement is handled properly it should continue raking in revenue for years to come. The PC port should kick up total sales and help bolster Capcom's FY2018 digital segment earnings to boot.
