This.There's no precedent for Iceborne (cheaper MH extension available as download) so no one really knows how to interpret it, and whichever "side" you like the number will be spun to be negative/positive.

Last gen 3DS had a couple MH releases starting with +1m resulting in more exciting times for the retail market.
