Monster Hunter World connection errors on PC acknowledged by Capcom Monster Hunter World PC Removed From Tencent's WeGame Platform in China

While the game's been out on Xbox One and PS4 for several months now, Capcom previously told fans the title was "currently being optimized for PC and is planned for an Autumn 2018 release" so it seems like the publisher's been able to bring the release forward earlier than planned.

The move came less than a week after the game was launched in China on August 8.

According to Capcom, it is investigating these connection errors for Monster Hunter World PC and hopes to fix them as soon as possible.

"The game is no longer available after the regulators received a large number of complaints that some parts of the game content do not meet regulatory requirements", Tencent said in the statement. Due to the large number of complaints, the government quickly chose to revoke the operating license of Tencent.

In addition to the Tencent stock drop, which occurred on Monday, the company has seen a 15 percent slide in its stock price since June.

"Tencent used to be world-class gaming and social media company, but has transformed into a massive multi-sector venture capital operation with important gaming and social media sidelines", said Brock Silvers, MD of Kaiyuan Capital, a China-based advisory.

While certainly an impressive game both in terms of mechanics and scale, the reception for the PC version of Monster Hunter: World has been less than stellar.

Last year, the Communist Party's newspaper the People's Daily criticized Tencent, saying minors were becoming addicted and wasting their parents' money on video games. Tencent has purchased the license to sell the game to PC users in China. With the new title, Capcom redesigned many elements specifically tailored for Western audiences, such as including more online play and letting players move freely through the game.
