Monster Hunter: World's PC version
More time for more polish

One of the year’s biggest games, Monster Hunter: World, will be releasing on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26th, 2018. The PC version, which was pushed back for further polish, doesn’t have an exact release date. Capcom has however provided this new video update, stating that Monster Hunter: World’s PC version is being planned to release sometime in August 2018.

While it disappointing that PC players have to wait to play Monster Hunter: World, it’s good that Capcom is taking the quality seriously. This much extra time should help ensure that PC players enjoy a smooth launch that’s as issue-free as possible.
