Monster Hunter Rise is due to release only on Nintendo Switch on March 26th.

This is strange considering the previous entry, Monster Hunter World, was released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC and became Capcom’s best selling game, beating Street Fighter 2 which has held the record since the early 90s.

Since World was so successful it seems weird that the game is only releasing on the Nintendo Switch.

But, some non-Switch owners are in luck because it has been confirmed that Monster Hunter Rise will be releasing on PC some time in 2022.

Series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto told IGN that "We received a lot of requests for a PC version of Monster Hunter Rise. This is still under development, so I'd like to share more detailed information when the time is right."

As of right now, there appears to be no plans to bring Monster Hunter Rise to neither PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5.

But, with the popularity of Monster Hunter World on PS4 and Xbox One, we wouldn’t be surprised if the game eventually makes it way to PlayStation, although right now it will remain a Nintendo Switch exclusive for at least a year.
