Monster Hunter: World will indeed be getting a PC launch — but there will be quite a wait attached to it.
Announced today on the game's official Twitter, the port is aiming to launch on PC in August of 2018. There is not a more specific date, sadly, meaning we are going to have to wait on that. In a video attached to the announcement, producer Ryozo Tsujimoto said even though the console version isn't quite out yet, work has already started on the PC version of the game.

What's more is that Tsujimoto reveals the game will be getting free content after launch as well. This will add new content to the game, including, importantly, new monsters so there will be plenty of reasons to stick around.
I'm truly intrigued by Monster Hunter: World. As someone who has adored the idea of the series, but found all the odd idiosyncracies off-putting, I'm absolutely up for a more 'westernised' rift on the game. Not long to wait now, either. January 26th isn't far away at all.
