Well deserved, game is fantastic. A GotY contender in my book.

So 10 Million by the end of this calendar year are very likely. Will be interesting to see if this game will outsell World on Switch + PC lifetime.

Dang. The game does look really good. A lot better than World, I think. I know it's coming to PC, but what Xbox and Playstation?

Likely not coming to other consoles, would be very surprising at least. The Capcom leak showed only a PC version iirc.

When it will be ready (2023 maybe), PS5/XSX will get the sequel to World.
Rise will probably remain a switch exclusive.

That would not be suprising to me. A follow up for World for PS5 and XSX being alternated with a Rise sequel later on for Switch console exclusive would allow Capcom to reach all platforms and have a version tailor made for Switch hardware (which is clearly the way to go).

Besides it is my understanding that having two different teams working on two different MH games at the same time with staggered releases would be nothing new to the franchise.
