TiMi Studios and Capcom are teaming up to bring the Monster Hunter license to smartphones.
At the origin of the mobile versions of Call of Duty (multiplayer FPS), Age of Empires (RTS) and Pokémon Unite (MOBA) for publishers Activision, Microsoft and The Pokémon Company, TiMi Studios is now involved in the development of a mobile game based in the universe of Monster Hunter for Capcom. Note that this is not the first time that Monster Hunter has tried mobile since a certain Monster Hunter Explore / Monster Hunter Smart was to attract early fans with an experience similar to console games, but the success has never been there, despite its free-to-play business model. The closure of the servers was recorded two years ago.
