.hack and Naruto Developer CyberConnect2 Preparing for PS4 and Xbox One Development

Cyberconnect2 is well known as the developer of the .hack and Naruto series, but for now they limited their production to the old generation. That is about to change, as mentioned during the CyberConnect2 Corporate Information Conference Kyushu 2014 recently held in Fukuoka.

We learn that while Cyberconnect2 still doesn’t have titles to announce, research for development on PS4 and Xbox One is already being performed, and we should stand-by for future announcements on the topic.

Personally I’m not the biggest Naruto fan, but I’d definitely appreciate a new generation .hack title.

Of course you can expect to read anything about future CyberConnect2 titles here on DualShockers as soon as they’re announced.

    Here’s hoping for more .hack. =D

  • They Call Me Senpai

    It’s about time they developed a Bleach game. Bleach, though one of the big 3, is criminally underrated and hasn’t had a game in years.

    I can’t be the only one who wants to see some next-gen Kenpachi action.

    • Abrar Auditore Jahin

      Senpai. This is your kouhai.
      Anyways, it’s true >.> a bleach game would be bloody awesome too!

      • They Call Me Senpai

        I’m sorry, Jahin-kouhai, but I don’t notice you.

        • Abrar Auditore Jahin

          No senpai ;-; don’t do this ;-;

          • They Call Me Senpai

            I’m sorry, Kouhai!

    • Bleach isn’t in the Big 3 anymore though. Hasn’t been for a long time. Toriko (although it doesn’t deserve it in my opinion) took its spot.

      • They Call Me Senpai

        Yes it is, where have you been?

        • “The Big 3” refers to the 3 manga with the best sales.

          Bleach isn’t in the Big 3 anymore. Check sales data.

          • I thought they stood for the most popular of the manga
            Ps is the newest scan on shonen gamez

    • >Bleach

      lol Bleach is trash, man. Don’t waste resources.

      • TipC

        Bleach is the Shit and would make for an awesome game if done correctly. Last bleach I played felt like a Naruto Shippuden game. Make something original if your going to make it.

        • Bleach is a generic series wherein the protagonist is somehow simultaneously a jobber and a Gary Stu that has literally every power group in him…

          And yet he still can’t fight.

  • theodor70941

    Never played any of their games, are the old once good?

  • Orichalon Hades

    Need more Haseo
    Need more Kite

    • Mikail

      Amen. Keep on praying :). We need HACK

    • animefreakhq

      Please no. They should create new characters instead of reusing the same character design.

      • Puppet Master

        PLZ GTFO.

        • TipC

          I agree. New generation of consoles. Give me some new content and new characters to like. I thought the same as you puppet master when GU came out. I was like who is this Haseo character WTF. and now I’ve spent almost as many hours on those games as I did watching and playing the first gen .hack. it’s time for something new though.

  • Cassive

    I never liked any of the Naruto games but I love the show, need to catch up on the new episodes now I think about it

  • Rickowned

    Remake of the original 4 dothack games! MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!!

  • Kuro-Law

    How about making a true ultimate ninja style fighting game for the best shonen out right now, AKA

    • They Call Me Senpai

      Far from the best, I like where you’re going.

      • Kuro-Law

        Currently the best shonen.

        • Mikail

          Lol…. One Piece is the true successor of Dragon Ball, The best of The Best Shonen No doubt about it . But in US most of fan are not aware and preferably choose Naruto over One Piece.

          • Kuro-Law

            Pretty much, its too underrated compared to the other big 3 in the west. The main excuse people use is that its too long and im just like. -___-


    .HACK + Morpheus … i can only dream 😉
    BTW a bit PSNova Character Creation

  • jzgames11

    Loved .hack first four , son still loves Narito as well , sounds great.

  • Khouli1989

    I want new .Hack games like the GU ones on the PS2.

    • Mikail


  • Cry_Zero

    PLEASE start a new Naruto series on PS4. The storm series was great but its time to start a new one. Better graphics and way more characters. Im sick of 20 sasukes and 15 narutos which they really do dare to count as extra characters… Just release a new series and start of like storm 1 but better

    • Sasuke

      yea they need to at most make 2 narutos and 2 sasukes, one naruto that goes from base mode to sage mode to Kcm Naruto, then the second naruto starts at Bijuu Mode Then Sage Mode Bijuu Mode Then Sage Of 6th Path Naruto
      they need to do that format to all characters

      • Cry_Zero

        Yep, They overdo it with the amount of sasukes and narutros they put in each game. Same goes for CHoji Itachi and killerbee in storm 3. They were basically the same characters, with 1 difference( Itachi had a different ougi I think and Killerbee a different jutsu?) How dare they count these as characters? They couldve placed them on the normal characters and make them switachable like in storm 1 where you could press R1 and change a characters outfit

        • Sasuke

          you’re right hopefully next gen they fix everything from the roster to the move sets because the storm series has a chance to be a real fighter

          • Cry_Zero

            It has but I really doubt that theyll change the basic combos and 1 jutsu per fight. I still dont unterstand who decided to implement just ONE jutsu per fight…. THats why they have to start a new naruto series on next gen :/ but I doubt that they will do that aswell cause it sells too damn well

  • Shadow Rebirth

    i need .HACK. Miss Haseo and his avatar :'(

    • Orichalon Hades


    • Mikail

      I am with u 🙂

  • NoNeedToArgue

    both of these series on PS4/XB1 would be marvelous. TGS reveals maybe?

  • christopher witherspoon

    I want them both im a huge fan of Naruto an .hack give me them NOWWWWWWWW

  • Nordu

    morpheus/oculus integration coming @_@!

  • ipot_04

    it’s about time they start making some PS4 games.

  • *Travis__Ringo*

    A NEW Naruto Please………

    • dark flame master

      I feel like they have already made so many naruto that they shouldn’t make another. I’m probably being biased on this but most of the naruto games I played just really didn’t appeal to me. I loved the gu series but the original 4 games really didn’t appeal to me ethire. I feel like they should make a game similar to the .hack//gu series but with a new protagonist. I love haseo and kite so much but they have already saved the world. Maybe make Luke a .hack//online. Make it so people can make whatever class they want . Make some servers pvp and some just pve. Make it so you can swich servers whenever. Than you got a great game for the new consols. (^.^) than again that’s just my opinion lol!

  • tylerc23

    If the games looked like the picture above, then my god I will buy them all

  • EliteTrainerXeos

    The problem fro the Naruto fans who have Xbone’s is that it’s chances of getting a version for the Xbox One rely solely on Namco Bandai.

  • Hehe cool.

  • Sasuke

    i hate when articles put their personal bias in things like saying “personally I’m not the biggest naruto fan But I’d definitely appreciate a new generation .hacktitle ” like whats the point of saying that? just give out the info and who cares if you don’t like the series, it always comes off as hate in my opinion

    • Mikail

      well “personally” i don’t care as long as they keep bringing the news, i am good with it :).

      • Sasuke

        same it just annoys me a lil tbh

  • Nihelus Aurenis

    I never played the PS2 .hack titles, but I always intended to. I’d definitely be interesting in playing a new one on PS4/XBO.

  • Uchihajosh2013

    Good to see something mates but I hope the PC are in the plans as well. If cc2 makes another storm I hope they go back to the drawing board like DBZ is doing with xenoverse.

  • UF8

    Clearly what we really need is a new Little Tail Bronx game. Even though we only heard about it from a conceptual standpoint, Strelka Stories genuinely sounded a hundred times better than Little Tail Story proved to be.

  • born_naughty

    I’d rather see something like Asura’s Wrath

  • Marcos Mortimer

    new .Hack please!!!! Take all my money!!!!!!!!!

  • Prince of Track

    A New Bleach game please?!!!?!?!?!?!?! Omg please make this happen!

  • Eric M.

    Where is the Naruto Love people??

  • 世 六

    dot//hack pls!!!

  • Zodiac Brave

    Or a .Hack/SAO Crossover

  • AGx

    I’d pay CC2 to develop it and then pay them again for it when it’s release. We NEED more .hack.

  • Adam Rivera

    I can’t NOT leave my opinion on this, years late or not. From most wanted to acceptable, I’d enjoy:

    ● A totally new story with MMORPG gameplay (Real, not mimicked). Character customization. Weekly events (like seen in the anime), main story quest completion, optional but not manditory co-op (with the option for AI assistance for the more reserved players), grunties, mandragora, in game message boards, legendary items, the works! Hell, if they need a lead for story development, I’m there. Fly me out!

    ● Less awesome but I would take the same game but with the usual “mimicked” Online feel but with new characters, a new The World revision (make it bigger!!!) And with loads of side questsp unlockable characters, bi-monthly or tri-monthly expansion content. Do NOT chop the original game into pieces and sell it separately. Start with a massive foundation and add on.

    ● A complete remake or re mastering of the original .hack// infection, mutation, outbreak, & quarantine games as a collection set with PS4 fluidity graphics with slightly more added content. Have the DVD content accessible via unlock when story progression has been made.

    Ahh… bliss

    I feel like they have already made so many naruto that they shouldn’t make another. I’m probably being biased on this but most of the naruto games I played just really didn’t appeal to me. I loved the gu series but the original 4 games really didn’t appeal to me ethire. I feel like they should make a game similar to the .hack//gu series but with a new protagonist. I love haseo and kite so much but they have already saved the world. I feel like it’s time for a new chapter to arrive, deepen the story from someone else’s point of view. Although I have to admit being able to use many different types of weapons with haseo was bad ass! That’s just my opinion though (^.^) interested to see what’s to come!

  • Shion Carlos

    Better then .Hack, they should take advantage of the new generation and make a The World game. Put us really inside The World and make us take our own conclusions and paths inside it. And, c’mon, Project Morpheus is there to help that!

  • Masaru Shisune

    All i want is an HD remaster of all the games like what metal gear got so i can play from the beginning on ps4 … by the time in done w/ that they should be done w/ next title lol
