The Japanese video game publisher and developer has apparently “looked into it” throughout the game’s development process and found it was unable to implement this feature. Here’s the full message:
One of the questions that got the most publicity was about the possibility of cross-play, cross-saves, and cross-progression between the Nintendo Switch and PC versions of the game. While it was an exciting thought at the time, Capcom has now shared an update with the community via social media.
“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.”
In other words, if you were planning on picking up the PC version early next year, you’ll be restarting the hunt from the very beginning.
