A Whole New World of Bummer News
The upcoming Iceborne expansion for Monster Hunter World is expected to be pretty huge and massive, so it’s not too surprising that it’s set to be the game’s sole full-scale DLC.
In an interview with Game Informer, producer Ryozo Tsujimoto confirmed the news, saying “Yes, Iceborne basically completes World so it will be the last expansion, we’re still planning a lot of updates for the future.”
While it’s great news that there will be more updates, it’s a bit of a shame that the team has no intention of making more of the developer’s best selling game in history. However, it’s nice to think that perhaps they’re forgoing more DLC in favor of a sequel, maybe even for next gen consoles! Wishful thinking, but considering how much money it made for Capcom and ongoing popularity, I’d say it’s more likely than not. That being said, perhaps I’m being ridiculous, wishing for more when the allegedly enormous expansion is still two months away.
Monster Hunter World is currently available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and the Iceborne expansion will be dropping this coming September 6th. In other recent news, hunters won’t need to purchase the Iceborne expansion to get the new Dynamic Mode difficulty releasing with the DLC, and Capcom recently released a few trailers showing off new monster hunting weapons. Let us know what you think in the comments!
