Monster Hunter fans have been probably asking one question over and over: when is the Monster Hunter World PC release date? Well, we don’t have that yet, but a new video message from producer Ryozo Tsujimoto has offered up a release window for the multiplayer monster slayer at least.
In the video shared by the game’s Twitter account, Tsujimoto recounted the past year of the game’s lead-up to console launch, including shows across the globe and the two beta tests held in December. Finally, the producer revealed the PC release window of Autumn of 2018.
According to Tsujimoto, the team is hard at work on optimizing the game for PC, which could account for the delay between Autumn of this year and the January 26th launch of the title on consoles. Tsujimoto also reiterated earlier statements that the game will be receiving free updates after the 26th, including new monsters for players to hunt.

So we’re of two minds here. On the one hand, it’s great that we have an idea of just when PC players in the West will finally see a supported and official launch of a Monster Hunter game. On the other hand, January and Autumn is a pretty big gap of time. Where do you stand on this announcement? Let us know.
