Capcom announced today via Monster Hunter’s official Twitter account that it will not implement cross-save or cross-play for Monster Hunter: Rise.
We have heard your requests for Cross-Save / Cross-Play for #MHRise & #Sunrise, but unfortunately we found that we were not able to implement it this time after researching it throughout the development process. As always, we appreciate your continued feedback and support.

Monster Hunter: Rise debuted for Switch on March 26th. A PC version will be released on January 12th. Fans hoped they could continue their development from the Switch game to PC. They also wanted to be able to play with others online even though they were not on the same platform. It does not happen either.
The previous Monster Hunter game, World, also does not support cross-play or cross-progression. It is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Rise gets an expansion pack, Sunbreak, later in 2022. It looks like you can better figure out which platform you want to settle on before Sunbreak’s release, so you have some time to prepare your hunter.
