Monster Hunter World is very popular.

Capcom announced today total worldwide shipments for Monster Hunter World stand at 6 million, making it the fastest title from the company to reach the figure.

The figure represents both digital download and retail shipments.

Since the first Monster Hunter title released 14 years ago in 2004, cumulative sales of the franchise have hit 46 million units worldwide as of February 9.

The game was released on January 26, and by January 29 Monster Hunter World had already shipped 5 million digital and physical units.

To celebrate the milestone, Capcom released a free Celebration Item Pack for Monster Hunter World.

Many players received the pack quickly, despite being sent out in waves. Others did not due to a bug, but today’s Monster Hunter World update 1.05 fixes the issue.

Currently, the game is only available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but a PC version is expected this autumn.
