Capcom Explains The Delayed Launch Of Monster Hunter: World On PC
Monster Hunter: World is going to release on PS4 and Xbox One this month but the PC version is delayed. The Producer Ryōzō Tsujimoto went on explaining why the PC version of the game is getting a delay. According to Tsujimoto, Monster Hunter: World PC version needs some improvements regarding network and lobby.
Monster Hunter: World is an action role-playing game where you roam around hunting monsters to get epic loot and craft/improve various pieces of equipment. Couple that with an epic story, vast world and you have MHW.

Ryōzō Tsujimoto explained a few things explaining the delays. The Producer 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. So rather than have it taking up resources during the console development and not it not being able to have our full attention on it. We want to get the console out the door and then we’re going to take some extra time and try and get the PC version as good as possible.”
In addition, Tsujimoto also told that Monster Hunter: World needed more work on matchmaking. As far as for consoles they already have an existing network for Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
“There’s extra work you need for PC as well. On console you use first-party matchmaking, you just kind of plug into it, whether it’s PSN or Xbox Live, but on PC we’re going to have to work more to get our own matchmaking working. So, hopefully, PC users won’t mind waiting a little bit longer for us to bring you a really great optimised PC experience.”
Monster Hunter: World full game launch is scheduled for Jan. 26, 2018 for PS4 and Xbox One users. The last beta of the game will be launched later this month with new content.
