Capcom has spoken out about the importance of Monster Hunter World, and how the playerbase for the title reflects how they feel about it on certain platforms.

According to Capcom's EMEA and UK marketing director, Antoine Molant, Capcom considers Monster Hunter World on the PC an"incredibly important market". Molant elaborates further and says to PCGamesInsider that the PC platform is the "second biggest one for Monster Hunter World amongst all platforms, therefore incredibly important."

While PC has come in as the second biggest platform for Monster Hunter World, the later release of the title was not detrimental to its sales. According to Molant, even though Capcom had to release the PC version of Monster Hunter World later than that of the console version, this "actually helped as the PC version has had its own window for promotion, PR, marketing. Some countries like Germany or Russia also performed extremely well on the PC front. All of this really increased our success in Europe." When asked about the future of Monster Hunter World, Molant pointed to the coming 'Iceborne' DLC that is planned for 2019, he says it will be a "key project for us" considering the success of World.

Jaks love for technology and more specifically PC gaming began at 10 years old, it was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on a old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of the typical FPS PC gamer, Jak enjoys the likes of a solid MMO, RPG, or a single-player linear story. More importantly, though, he holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
