A lot of PC fans have been wondering why Monster Hunter World is being delayed until autumn for their platform while coming out for consoles on January 26th. According to producer Ryozo Tsujimoto, there's a good reason. "For the main Monster Hunter game, this is our first PC title and it's something we want to make sure we get right." he told GamesRadar (via PCGamer).

    So this is a Co-op/multiplayer game only, correct?

    I'm not an IT Specialist, Game Developer, or Clairvoyant in real life, but like others on here, I play one on the internet.

    This shows they didn't care about PC users during the main development and the PC version is just going to be extra cash after the game goes stale on console.

    No... It is just that PC is a tiiiiiiiiny bit more complex to optimize for than console. And we have numerous examples of shitty PC ports that was rushed for the sake of release. 

    My opinion is always that it is better to make it right from the start.

    while i completely agree with you on that, why on earth is that something they talk about and think about at the end of the development cycle for the game ?!
    if they really wanted to bring the game to PC, maybe they should have taken all these things into consideration before shipping the game to consoles ...
    it just looks like PC was a simple afterthought once the game was done and they have zero expertise on how to properly do it.

    i genuinely hope they nail it though.

    I've already ordered my copy for PS4. But if the game ends up being good and getting a good PC port, I could see owning both versions.

    If you are shooting for troll status at least avoid typos in the key words of your troll.

    Saying that....PC is getting more love so the game can take advantage of the vastly superior resources available. I'm cool with that.

    I already pre ordered for PS4 pretty much because i think ill have no interest in this game by the time it releases for PC. As far as delaying the PC launch "to get it right" I'm calling B.S. on that. They are just looking to drive sales 9 months from now when the console profits are at zero because everyone who wanted the game will already have purchased it.

    As mentioned in this thread by @Aeander if the game is spectacular then people who own a gaming PC may end up purchasing this game twice. Sleazy move by capcom IMO.

    It will be the first monster hunter we can play on pc (In Europe/America at least), I can definitely wait.

    I'll have more time to play on summer anyway.

    In other words the game sucks right now......
  • AeanderAeander Walker, LAMember EpicPosts: 1,669
    Honestly, I would be more excited for a Switch port than a PC port. This type of game would be so natural on Switch.

    Well this is just false, yeah their are cheaters but they don't run the market, maybe a few percent more than the console side of things in games like this.

    Never saw the point of playing MH game without G rank anyway, so the wait doesnt bother me a single bit. Let console player pay full price for the demo version.

    Should be able to pick it up in a Steam Sale for $7.99 by the time it comes out on PC.

    huh?

    Steam sale on a console title?

    They’re going to discount the PC release because who’s going to pay full price for it when there are tons of games just like it on Steam that cost pennies. 

    That strategy may work on consoles but PC is another matter. They’ve got a shit-ton of competition on PC.

    Please, name me even some of these "Tons of games just like it on steam that cost pennies". I can think of a handful and some of those have yet to drop below 50% off...and none compare to a Monster Hunter game. That said, I am really disappointed that everything about the game will be old news and likely every detail spoiled well before it releases on PC. Poor form Capcom, you were doing so well with every other aspect of this release.
