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.

The game launched on Steam for the PC on August 9, 2018.
