With the second Monster Hunter Digital Event featuring Monster Hunter Rise and Monster Hunter Stories 2 planned for early March, Capcom has confirmed for Imran Khan at fanbyte that Monster Hunter Rise is coming to PC. While the Monster Hunter Rise Nintendo Switch release date is set for March 26, PC players will have to wait until 2022. Monster Hunter Rise for PC is still in development. Ahead of the Monster Hunter Rise release date in March 2021, I recently spoke to Yasunori Ichinose at Capcom about Monster Hunter Rise’s returning monsters and more. Read the full interview here. I also spoke to Ryozo Tsujimoto about Monster Hunter Stories 2 and how it can be enjoyed by newcomers. Read that interview here. Watch the latest Monster Hunter Rise trailer below:
Will Monster Hunter Rise have crossplay between PC and Nintendo Switch?
The biggest question for Monster Hunter fans who play on PC and console is whether crossplay is possible. While Monster Hunter World didn’t have crossplay, since Monster Hunter Rise is on PC and Nintendo Switch by 2022, hopefully crossplay or cross progression are possible.
Monster Hunter Rise PC release date
As of now, Monster Hunter Rise is in development for PC and set for early 2022. A release date will likely be announced later in the year. The official Monster Hunter Rise website has revealed an early 2022 release window for Monster Hunter Rise on Steam.
