On PC, Monster Hunter: World launched more than six painful months after than it did on consoles. Its new expansion will also have a late arrival on our platform – it’s due on September 6 for consoles, but the Iceborne release date is sometime in the winter for us.
We caught up with producer Ryōzō Tsujimoto at E3 this year to ask him, essentially, how come, and whether this will continue to happen for future updates.
“We know that the title updates for console have taken a while to reach PC, which is something that a lot of PC players have given us feedback about,” Tsujimoto says. “We’re going to try and see if we can work out something better for that schedule and see how we can make improvements. Don’t feel like you’ve haven’t been heard, but we’re not quite ready to announce specifics just yet.”
