The official Monster Hunter Twitter account recently posted a tweet sharing new information regarding the potentiality of cross-play and cross-save being implemented in the Switch version of Monster Hunter Rise and its upcoming PC port. Unfortunately, the account announced that neither of those functionalities are planned to be implemented, much to the dismay of the player base.
This news has many fans who were considering purchasing the PC version cancel their plans altogether as having to invest dozens to even hundreds of hours onto a new platform does not seem worthwhile. Here’s hoping these implementations occur at some point down the line to unite players as much as possible and to make playing Monster Hunter Rise across Switch and PC a generally more cohesive, less cumbersome experience.
You can view the announcement tweet of this unfortunate news below:
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. As always, we appreciate your continued feedback and support.

Monster Hunter Rise will be released for PC via Steam on January 12, 2022.
Monster Hunter Rise is the latest entry of the action RPG series, where players are tasked with taking on some of the most powerful monsters around. The game is set in the Kamura Village, home to many warriors who have developed unique and innovative hunting technologies. One of which is a remarkable insect called a Wirebug. This allows players to grapple themselves in any direction, making it possible to scale cliffs and structures.
The “Sunbreak” expansion was announced during the latest Nintendo Direct and will provide a plethora of content to all players across both Switch and PC in Summer 2022.
