Monster Hunter World took the world by storm when it was released back in 2018. It allowed players to experience everything that they loved about the series with new gameplay elements and atmospheric enhancements that have made it one of the best in the series. In fact, fans were so enamored with the game that it spawned an expansion titled Monster Hunter World: Iceborne which introduced new monsters for players to take down and areas to explore.
With the popularity of the series continuing to grow, what are the chances of a sequel to Monster Hunter World happening?
Can we expect a Monster Hunter World 2?
It's pretty unlikely that we'll see a sequel over an expansion to the base game if anything. The time to create a sequel would have been directly after the Iceborne expansion and since then, other titles in the franchise have been released that have had similar success. At this point, the next main installment will likely receive an entirely new name.
That isn't to say that the game won't be happening at all, but there haven't been any announcements or teasers about it as of yet. There's no denying that the base game changed the landscape of the Monster Hunter series but there doesn't look to be a continuation for the series as of now.
