Interesting, whilst World is older, it sold more than Rise in the same quarter.

It's really shocking how little Rise sold, but the PC version and Sunbreak should get things going again.

Rise crossed 8 million after PC version, so only 300k after its launch. It's clearly bombing on PCs, Switch will probably encompass the vast majority of Rise sales

Selling seven million ish on one console and barely any on the PC is hardly a failure if nothing else.

Looking at concurrent players on Steam for the first week of launch. Monster Hunter Rise peaked at 134,000. Monster Hunter World peaked at 334,000. So World was 2.5x more popular with players at peak hours after launch.
So it’s still a good result with at least 900,000 copies sold during the first three weeks on sale on PC, but not the PC blockbuster that World was.

I expect it will still do well during its first discount sale and expansion launch, but not quite the world beater of the previous game.

I agree that Switch sales will make up the majority for sure, but I think it's a bit early to conclude that it's bombing on PC. Crossing 8 mil was just a milestone announcement, there's a good chance it's well past that by the next quarterly report. On top of that PC versions often have better legs than their console counterparts in the long run, continuing to sell for years after.

You must know that 300k is the minimum that it sold at launch on PC. It wasn't exactly at 8mil but over 8mil.

Dos anyone know if Sunbreak will be treated like a separate game like Iceborne is on this list

It's likely going to be like Iceborne.

What is the average price that both have been selling for in the last quarter?

Please capcom at least see this as most consumers prefer the old school resident evil compared to the new on n yes I did enjoy 7 and village but at the same time it just didn’t feel like a resident evil of old to me

See what exactly as that? RE2 and RE7 sold the same last quarter.

Why do they have some games split by platform and others not? Mostly the RE games. 4 is on a lot of platforms so why not just add them together?

Capcom is really delivering very good results and they deserve it. I hope they remain independent, however if anyone has to buy them I hope it will be Sony or Microsoft.
