Monster Hunter: Rise Sunbreak Expansion Reaches 2M Milestone
Monster Hunter: Rise’s Sunbreak expansion was able to ship two million copies globally. Capcom made the official announcement on social media. To celebrate this milestone, devs are giving away two item packs on July 7th.
“Thank you so much for your incredible support!” devs wrote. “Monster Hunter: Rise surpassed 10 million units globally, with Sunbreak already sun-breaking two million units, too!”
Monster Hunter: Rise Sunbreak expansion is a full-featured DLC with many new additions. Examples of these are new quest ranks, monsters, locales, quests, hunting actions, and a story chapter. It is definitely bringing a lot of new things that will make the game even more interesting for fans. However, devs have made it clear that they are not stopping here.
Capcom wants the gaming community to know that Monster Hunter: Rise Sunbreak is not an endpoint, but a milestone for the franchise. They plan to keep supporting the game with further content. They intend to boost sales through ongoing promotions and competitive pricing strategies.
The franchise has been strong since its inception back in 2004. Players have been teaming up to hunt giant monsters with beautiful scenic backgrounds. Each installment in the franchise has managed to capture the action RPG gaming community in its own way.
“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 84 million units shipped as of July 5, 2022,” devs wrote.
Prior to the release of Sunbreak, 2018’s Monster Hunter: World was its most significant success. The base game and its Iceborne DLC sold a record-breaking number of 21 million units. Sunbraek has already brought success for Capcom and the Monster Hunter franchise. With that said, it may surpass the sales figure of World and its Iceborne expansion.
