¬†Monster Hunter: World‘s producer, Ryozo Tsujimoto, announced today that the PC version of the action role-playing game is aiming to release in Autumn 2018.

A Youtube video which was uploaded today shows Tsujimoto thanking fans for their support at the different game conferences, playing the beta in December and giving feedback on what they played. Tsujimoto then goes on to say that the development team is working hard on the PC version and is aiming for an Autumn 2018 release. No substantial information was given on why the PC port’s release window is so far away from the console version but let’s hope the final version warrants the extra development time.

Also in the video, Tsujimoto explained that Monster Hunter: World will be getting free updates after it’s initial launch; it will include new monsters and items to keep players busy.

Monster Hunter: World is scheduled to release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26 with a PC version coming later this year.
