Capcom has just tweeted out that fans who were waiting for Monster Hunter: Rise on PC might have to start with a clean slate. The studio has confirmed that Monster Hunter: Rise will not be able to crossplay or let players carry over their cross-save from the Switch to the PC version.
No Crossplay or Cross-Save for Monster Hunter: Rise on PC.
Monster Hunter: Rise on PC is going to be launching on PC on January 12th, 2022. The game was released exclusively on the Nintendo Switch earlier this year and was heralded as a critical and commercial success.
Capcom later announced that the game would be coming in (very) early 2022 for the PC and fans were overjoyed. However, the news might turn sour as Capcom has just tweeted that they currently don’t see it possible for the PC version and the Nintendo Switch version to carry over crossplay or cross-save.
While Capcom has done a great action by telling people months before the release about the lack of the feature and allowing players enough time to cancel their pre-orders should they wish to, it is still unfortunate that the game will be unable to have the two sought after features requested by fans.
For now, fans are definitely upset at the development and are expressing their disappointment, but those who will still want to play the game will hold their pre-orders ready and just play the game with their PC friends when the game does launch.
Perhaps down the road, Capcom can figure out the situation in the tweet for the better and at least figure out a way to solve the crossplay to ensure the longevity of the game.
