New .hack title in the works for consoles and handhelds

A new entry in the massive .hack franchise is on the way, CyberConnect 2 boss Hiroshi Matsuyama confirmed at New York Comic Con.

"There is actually a [.hack] title that has yet to be revealed, in which we will implement new ideas. Stay tuned for details, as we’re not allowed to release them right now,” Matsuyama told Gematsu.

While the developer declined to give solid details, he did say that the new title is head to both consoles and handhelds.

The .hack series is a fairly confusing conglomerate of games, anime, manga and spin-off media which is mainly concerned with a fictional MMO called The World which is troubled by mysterious goings on. Although other creators have had a hand in it, it is CyberConnect2's brainchild.
