Capcom explains Monster Hunter World PC delay

Capcom explains Monster Hunter World PC delay

In two weeks time, console players will get their hands on Monster Hunter: World. With this being the case, the RPG series' producer Ryozo Tsujimoto recently chose to clear the air as to why the forthcoming title will eschew the controversial concept altogether. This means building a new matchmaking system and figuring out things the Monster Hunter team hadn't tried before. The series producer stated that doing so exclusively for money "doesn't make any sense" and would undermine "harmony" between players.

"This is a co-op game and you're going out in up to four-people parties". "If you feel someone hasn't earned what they've got or they've got a better weapon just because they paid for it and you worked for yours, that creates friction". Preserving the core experience of slaying monsters was also important to the team, without diluting it. Putting in loot boxes and microtransactions to maximise profit "doesn't make any sense" according to Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto.

Tsujimoto said: "For the main Monster Hunter game, this is our first PC title and it's something we want to make sure we get right". Not a bad reason at all, if you ask me. Consoles already have Xbox Live for the Xbox One, as well as PlayStation Network for the PlayStation - therefore, will not be needing as much attention to detail as the PC servers. So, hopefully, PC users won't mind waiting a little bit longer for us to bring you a really great optimised PC experience. It doesn't make any sense.


Tsujimoto goes on to note that Monster Hunter relies on players learning how to beat Monsters through intuition, rather than simply having the best equipment, meaning having paid-for items would break the balance of the mechanics. "There's no way we would interrupt that flow".

It came to our attention recently that Capcom are delaying the release for Monster Hunter: World on PC, with the console version of the game is due for release very soon Ryozo Tsujimoto has come fourth and has explained why the developer has chose to extend the PC launch for more development time.
