Despite being 2 decades old, the Monster Hunter franchise only recently became the juggernaut that it is, with Monster Hunter World in particular putting the series on the map for many people – which was then further cemented by the release of Monster Hunter Rise. With so many fans eagerly awaiting the series’ next game, Capcom have now announced their plans for Monster Hunter’s 20th anniversary.
Announced during Capcom’s Tokyo Game Show online program, the publisher said “Dear intrepid hunters, The Monster Hunter series will celebrate its 20th anniversary in March 2024.
We on the Monster Hunter team would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of our players. We have only been able to reach this significant milestone thanks to your support.”
They continue, “With these 20 years of success behind us, we hope to ride this momentum and bring you bigger, better, and even more exciting hunting experiences that will thrill and surprise you. We invite you, dear hunters, to join us on the journey ahead. Happy Hunting!”
With it having been well over 6 years since the original launch of Monster Hunter World, many fans are hoping to see a sequel finally revealed in time for the series’ 20th anniversary. Maybe we’ll get an announcement at The Game Awards? We will have to wait and see what Capcom has planned.
