Earlier this month, Capcom ran a survey asking a series of questions about its insanely successful Nintendo Switch release, Monster Hunter Rise - which will also be making its way to the PC in January next year.

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.

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:

"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. How do you feel about this? Leave a comment down below.
