Info leaks. No .hack. Pack it up and go home, everyone.

In all honesty though it’s been less than 4 months since Last Recode’s release, so I don’t know if we should’ve expected much. Don’t lose hope!

Darn, but I guess that's to be expected. Those first two interest me, especially the post-WW1 setting in Gate. Still, I can't help but be a bit disappointed that there's no mention of .hack in there.

It's probably because these games are all self-published that they're able to talk about them so freely, including how Project Venom's development has halted. Considering .hack is owned by Bamco, I'd say it's up to them when to let the news loose. Also, according to a user on Resetera who attended Matsuyama's Montreal Q&A, when asked why CC2 was removed from FFVII:R he seemed confused and said while their influence was lessened, they weren't removed entirely from the project, so you can mark that down as one of their three contracted projects. Aside from that, it's probably safe to say the other one is some Jojo's/Naruto game, and the third could be .hack. Who knows, maybe it's even AW2, considering Capcom owns the rights to that.

I'm so glad to hear that! When I hear Square had moved it in house, I was worried they were spreading their resources too thin again. Good to know they still have CC2 helping them out.

What're the 3 contracted titles? I guess FF7 is still one of 'em in some small way? Often HD collections were used as marketing for a new entry in a series that'd be coming out soon. So it feels like having a new .hack this year shouldn't be unreasonable. Last Recode / .hack novel / end of bullet / 15th anniversary all really came outta nowhere so why not a full new game as well? If they really mean to "revive" the series going dormant agains not gonna help any. Gotta build on that renewed interest an fast!

It depends on how Last Recode sold, but Japanese numbers + Western estimates seems to indicate over 100K. They did mention at the time of announcement that there were a bunch of different things they had planned but it's all up to Uchiyama (and Bamco's) decision after Last Recode.

We're back to it being a dead-zone. There's some activity on open chats like Discord, but an HD re-release of a ten year old game didn't revive .hack lol. Now we wait for the series to die or get a new entry and go on living.
They've been pushing merch in Japan all winter. I dunno about the West, but it feels quite lively over there. Every day I'm seeing new cosplay, art, and even ChimChim snowmen on Twitter. Also because Bamco is too busy promoting DB FighterZ over here to care about .hack. We'll just have to wait for February 1st!

I could see that really turning into something honestly. On average most of CC2's Naruto Games have at least some great visual content. It's sad that things are going as well for .hack as they could. Still maybe CC2 could work on some light pre-post game DLC to keep the series moving in the meantime. Although what that could entail would be a mystery in and of itself.

Hope those decisions are made soon! It'd be dropping the ball hard to reintroduce the series to the world outside of japan and then fall silent!

An it doesn't help that they apparently added even more unresolved mystery/new characters with Innocent Call, which didn't make it outside of Japan. Speaking of which how few Premium Editions were even sold? 3 months later and the Vol.4 OST and Drama CD still don't call up any CD database info. vgmdb doesn't even list either of 'em yet they have the Piano tune collection which was released the same day. >_>;
