Development History / Background:

Monster Hunter: World was first announced at E3 2017 during Sony's press conference on June 12. The game marks a first for the now 10+ year old Monster Hunter franchise. It will be the first mainline game to see a PC release, the first to have an open world format, and the first to support global servers for co-op rather than regional support. Capcom, the Japanese studio behind the game, stated that they adopted a more open world format along with quality of life changes to better appeal to Western gamers and to take the franchise more global.
