CyberConnect2 Are Currently Working On A Major Original Title

By Sato . August 19, 2014 . 1:45am


CyberConnect2, makers of the .hack series and Naruto fighting game titles for Bandai Namco, recently held their “CC2 Summer Campaign 2014” talk event, where they revealed that they’re currently working on a major project. [Thanks, Game Jouhou.]


CyberConnect2 has created original games in the past such as Tail Concerto and Solatorobo: Red the Hunter, but both of those were passion projects rather than major releases.


According to president and CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama, CyberConnect2 are in the midst of developing a major original title. He also mentioned that they’d like to properly announce it in the near future.


With the recently announce SCEJA Press Conference 2014 and this year’s Tokyo Game Show around the corner, it sounds like we might be hearing about their new title sooner than later.

    I really hope they do announce a lot of stuff this TGS.

    Last year’s TGS was pretty disappointing because there weren’t a lot of new unveilings. Similar to how Gamescom last year had almost nothing new. Well, Gamescom this year had a lot of news to deliver in comparison. I hope TGS can follow suit as well.

  • Otoya

    .hack please~~~

  • David García Abril

    That’s awesome, CC2!

    Just… You know… Don’t put the ending as DLC.

  • AlphaSixNine

    I only pray it’s not a smartphone game. WHERE’S MY NEW .HACK CC2?!
    I hope it’s a home console game or for Vita :3

  • Randy Marsh

    Just give me a new .hack series for PS4, I’d just love that. No seriously, I really hope its a new .hack game, but what are the chances of that happening, am I right? If its not, meh let’s see what this new title shall be and what it has to offer!

  • D-Omen

    New Little Tail Bronx game for 3DS? Pretty please?

  • This is awesome news! I was wondering when we would hear something from CC2, and now they’re working on a new major original title. Ah, life is good lol =^_^=

  • indra jaya

    I love .HACK, but after Asura’s Wrath “true ending DLC” I wont keep my expectation high… I dont know why they think its good idea to sell ending as separate DLC.

    • aizen310

      That game gotten developed under Capcom’s management. Capcom is infamous in a way how they handle DLCs.

      CC2 is a decent DEVELOPER. They are not PUBLISHERs.

  • MinakoArisato

    Is it really possible?
    Like, a “The World”-Simulator? With character Creation and so on?

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    If it’s not .hack a small minority will get angry.

  • Solomon_Kano

    I want to believe.

  • If anything they’ll target their furry niche again and give us a .Hack like game with a similar setting to Solatorobo and Tail Concerto… >_>

    .Hack or at least a spiritual successor to .Hack on PlayStation 4 would be ideal, but CC2 hasn’t made anything interesting since .Hack VS, as far as I am concerned. So I won’t get my hopes up just yet.

  • aizen310

    So it won’t gonna be a new Bleach game.
    *dies inside… again*

  • artins90

    I was kind of expecting this since Naruto will end in December, probably ultimate ninja storm revolution will be their last title for the Naruto franchise, I’m glad they already have something new to work on, they are very talented I can’t wait to hear more about their new project

    • hng qtr

      It’s finally ending? Maybe now someone at Jump will force Togashi to work again.

  • Cephrien

    Silent Bomber. Let’s go.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Please be a new Little Tail Bronx game!

    Heck, I’d even settle for an upgraded port of Solatorobo to 3DS.

  • Nerroth

    Maybe they’ll go a bit meta and have their own Maker be the lead character:

    (Or, at least, perhaps they might make her available as DLC, akin to how NISA-chan has appeared in a couple of recent Disgaea games.)

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    The World

  • Lloyd Christmas

    Gimme JOJO 2!

  • ishyg

    An actual “The World” using Morpheus?
    I’m just happy to have something from CC2.

  • Too bad this isn’t likely to be a .hack title, since it seems to be a new IP revealing, but I hope this does well enough that they can give some resources back to series like that.

  • Liam Scanlan

    I’m getting the feeling that, since they said that this was both “major” and “original”, this will be a mixed-media franchise, a la “Pokémon”, “Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Children (aka “Demi Kids”)”,”Blue Dragon”, “LBX”, “Gyrozetter”, “Gaist Crusher”, “Hero Bank”, and “Yo-Kai Watch”. In other words, CC2 might simultaneously turn that game into a a manga, a TV anime, a card game, a toy line, an arcade game, and who knows what, even if it IS set in the “Little Tail Bronx” universe.

  • Kornelious

    …..You know, I’m reminded now that we never got .Hack versus :(

    • Or the associated movie that came with Versus. :(

  • Bigabu Beaze

    I still hope its a Solatorobo Sequel.

  • CozyAndWarm

    They’ve been pretty quiet on the Wii U front, hopefully they’ve got something in the cards there!

    A lot of devs are trying to hype themselves up before TGS as always, but after the last couple years I’ll be keeping my hype in check I think.

  • MaximDualBlade

    Welcome to [The World]

  • UF8

    Strelka Stories plz.

    Who cares that it’s already been quietly cancelled; it wouldn’t be a Little Tail Bronx game without a complicated-as-hell dev cycle.

  • Tg

    Solatorobo 2, please?
    (Second time saying this. ^^; )
