As a result, after garnering critical acclaim from the global press and delighting players the world over, Monster Hunter: World has shipped 6 million units, becoming the fastest Capcom title to reach this milestone in company history. There are bug fixes for Squads and Quests but nothing particularly huge.

In a recent press release, Capcom announced that their most recent game, Monster Hunter: World, the latest entry in the Monster Hunter franchise has reached another milestone, i.e. the game has now sold over 6 million copies globally. Due to this problem, they have extended the Celebration Pack availability until February 22. If you were carrying more than that before installing the update, you'll be able to use any extras before the new limit is imposed. There are also some problems that have been fixed: players could join even though they weren't invited to squads; there were also some connection issues for players. "Please wait and try again". Capcom also made some changes to the Light and Heavy Bowguns, increasing the power of some basic ammo while decreasing the power of the slicing ammo. Capcom has launched the patch on both PS4 (version 1.05) and Xbox One (1.0.0.10), and it resolves some of the issues that have plagued the multiplayer experience. Unfortunately, Capcom says that players who created a Squad and were affected by this will have lost any Squad data.

Fixed an issue where some players could not claim the item pack "5 Million Celebration Item Pack".

Xbox One matchmaking remains an issue, however, with the developer apologising for the delay in rolling out a fix.

Increased the power of Normal Ammo (1, 2, 3), Pierce Ammo (1, 2, 3), and all elemental ammo (except Dragon Ammo). Players can only carry 30 Slashberries in their item pouch from now on.

Elderseal calculation for dragon pods has also been readjusted.

Fixed an issue where information on endemic life would disappear from the Wildlife Map when moving about the field.

These stats are from the latest Media Create stats, which also revealed that about 1,591,356 units of that entire six million represent retail sales for PlayStation 4 in Japan, though the game came out across the world back on January 26 on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at the same time.

Fixed an issue where the assignment "Flying Sparks: Tobi-Kadachi" would not appear on the quest board after departing on a different quest in the middle of speaking with the Chief Botanist just before the quest is first assigned. The update also contains a lot of bug fixes.

Fixed an issue where, rarely, uninvited non-squad members could join a Squad Online Session, or squad members could not join one of their own.

Monster Hunter: World is now available for PS4 and Xbox One, with a PC release to follow in Fall 2018.
