Capcom Will Port Monster Hunter Rise to PC in 2022

Following in Monster Hunter: World's footsteps, Monster Hunter Rise is getting a PC port a year after release.

Capcom will release Monster Hunter Rise on PC in 2022, series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto told IGN.

Tsujimoto mentioned the decision came after carefully considering what fans wanted. He said:

We received a lot of requests for a PC version of Monster Hunter Rise, particularly from overseas players, and so we have decided to develop a version for PC, which we aim to release in early 2022.

Monster Hunter Rise is built on the RE engine that powered Devil May Cry 5 and the Resident Evil 2 remake. Whether the Rise PC port includes enhanced graphics or at least additional options isn't certain.

Tsujimoto declined IGN's requests for more information, saying the Rise PC port is still under development.

This marks the second Monster Hunter game to see a release on desktop, following Monster Hunter: World and the Iceborne expansion's PC ports. 

Monster Hunter Rise will first release on March 26 for Nintendo Switch. Check out the latest footage from the February Nintendo Direct, featuring new monsters and a glimpse of the deadly Rampage.

Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
