Here is an overview of the series and game, via Capcom:
The Monster Hunter series consists of hunting action games that pit players against giant monsters in a beautiful natural environment. Beginning with the first title in 2004, the series established a new genre in which players cooperate to hunt ferocious monsters with their friends and has since grown into a global phenomenon with cumulative sales of the series exceeding 78 million units shipped as of September 30, 2021.
Monster Hunter Rise was released for Steam, a PC platform with a broad global user base, on January 13, 2022. Featuring high-resolution 4K support and voice chat functionality for PC, the game provided a fresh hunting experience that garnered praise from players while additionally growing the player base across a wide range of countries and regions. This, combined with sales of the Nintendo Switch version that was released in March 2021, drove global shipments of the game to surpass eight million units.
Going forward Capcom looks to further expand its player base with Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, a massive premium expansion for this title that is slated for release in summer of 2022.
Capcom remains firmly committed to satisfying the expectations of all users by leveraging its industry-leading game development capabilities.
