Capcom has been doing pretty well with the release of their newest Monster Hunter game on the Nintendo Switch, and coming January next year PC players will be able to get a slice of that pie too. But for those of you who may have bought the Switch version first to play on PC later, or play with friends on a different platform, it seems like that won’t be the case this time round.

Capcom has confirmed that Monster Hunter Rise will not support crossplay or cross-saves from Switch to PC and vice versa. This also includes the upcoming Sunbreak expansion in Summer 2022. Apparently they looked into it before the PC launch, but were unable to implement them at this time.

We’ve heard your requests for Cross-Save / Cross-Play for #MHRise & #Sunbreak, but unfortunately, after looking into it throughout the development process, we found we are unable to implement it this time,” Capcom said. “As always, we appreciate your continued feedback and support.

An official PC demo for MH Rise will be available tomorrow, so if you have bought the game on Switch already and want to see if the PC version is worth starting over for, then you can check that out soon. Otherwise, hopefully next time round Capcom will be able to implement such features earlier, as they plan to focus more on the PC platform.

What do you think? Would you have liked crossplay and cross-saves for Monster Hunter: Rise? Have you bought the Switch version already? How do you feel about getting the PC version as well? Let us know!

Did you buy Monster Hunter Rise on Switch before PC?

Definitely gonna double dip. I really enjoyed the combat so far and the only complaint I still have with it is the lack of endgame (Which hopefully Sunbreak will fix) and the graphics. This is also probably the fastest monster hunter I've ever played combat wise.

Me and my missis waited because we knew about the PC version from the very start, which helped with that decision. What doesn't help is all the flashiness...

I call that the MOBA effect. The flashier the effects are the worse it is to read the situation. Now add 4 people to the mix it and you feel like you dove headfirst into a bag of glitter with a lightbulb at the bottom

All I really want to see in MH games is a blood splatter and maybe a small crit flash like in MHFU, that's it. These flashes on every swing and every breath don't make sense :/
