Because of this, many have been wondering whether or not Monster Hunter Rise will eventually make its way to other platforms. Here’s whether Monster Hunter Rise will come to PC, Xbox and PlayStation platforms.

Monster Hunter Rise Platforms: What Platforms Is it Coming Out On?

Monster Hunter Rise is currently planned for an exclusive release on Nintendo Switch. It looks as though it’s Nintendo only for now, and given that it’s been developed from the ground up for Switch, it’s likely that it’ll stay there for the time being.

Will Monster Hunter Rise Come to Xbox?

Monster Hunter World released for Xbox platforms, but it doesn’t look like Rise will be following the same path. Many of the previous entries in the series have been Nintendo exclusives, with World being somewhat of an exception. Monster Hunter Tri, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Monster Hunter 4 and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate all stayed put on Nintendo consoles.

PC Release Date?

Given that Monster Hunter Rise is being so heavily promoted by Nintendo, and is a Switch exclusive, it’s unlikely that we'll be seeing a PC release any time soon. It is the only platform listed as official at the moment however, so it is for definite coming at some point. It's currently listed as Early 2022, so it'll be worth keeping an eye on.
