Monster Hunter World is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26, but the PC version is going to be a little closer to the end of 2018.

Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto took to twitter to announce the release window in the form of a video. Tsujimoto promised the team is working hard on the PC version and says it is aiming for autumn 2018. He also said more details will be coming later and after the release of the console versions of the game, free updates will be coming, including new monsters.
We recently had Monster Hunter: World on our cover. For all of our features on the game from our month of coverage, click the banner below.
We've known the PC version of the game would be coming after the console release, but I thought it would be a little sooner than this. Also, Tsujimoto's use of the the word "aim" in terns of the release window doesn't inspire a ton of confidence. Hopefully PC players will be playing Monster Hunter: World in 2018.
