Monster Hunter World: Iceborne was released in September, and Capcom has a clear roadmap of content lined up for the expansion. Read our review of Iceborne here to see if it’s worth sticking with Capcom’s beast-hunting opus.
The Japanese software giant previously touched on what a potential next-generation Monster Hunter title could look like. To be fair, it’s not out of the question; Capcom’s RE Engine is already prepped and ready to embrace PS5 and Xbox Scarlett.
