I thought of this when someone in another thread very bluntly put it that they don't believe things will change on this aspect of the series, and we will get G-rank as a separate game like they've always done before. Now at this point it's no exaggeration that Monster Hunter World has made Capcom a lot of money, and by extension has attracted a rather large new playerbase to the franchise. Of couse, it's up to Capcom now to make the decisions that would ultimately keep these new players attatched/invested in Monster Hunter for the long haul. Make new fans out of most of them basically.
The only thing that could possibly 100% alienate the new players right now is to abandon most of the QoL changes World has, and we all know that's not gonna happen. So what could alienate the new players? Well I've only heard a few express their opinions on this, but some have already said they wouldn't be interested in buying the same game twice, especially if they have to start all over from scratch. Now the good news is that the G-rank games usually have a save transfer system, so all the progress you've made in the vanilla game can be carried over, and you won't have to repeat gaining all that progress. But even so, could the fact that G-rank might be a separate game that's essentially the same but with more content, drive off you as a potential new MH fan anyways? There seems to be a stigma to buying the same game again from what I've seen, especially to the more casual western gaming communities.
