CyberConnect2 to announce new projects on February 1

Naruto and .hack developer CyberConnect2 will announce new projects on February 1, 2018, company president and CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama teased during the latest “Game Kaiwai Idobata Kaigi” live stream. “Rather than reminisce about the past 20 years, we will announce what kind of strategy we have planned for the next 10 years,” Matsuyama said. “We will announce new CyberConnect2 developments and new projects.” According to Matsuyama, the announcements will come through press outlets such as Famitsu. He added that Famitsu does not know anything about what they are going to announce yet, and will not be gathering all the necessary material for their coverage until January 11. In a separate Famitsu interview regarding ambitions for 2018, Matsuyama said, “I have been developing games for more than 20 years, and I will soon announce our ‘New 10 Year Plan for the Future.’ I will reveal the new business strategy of CyberConnect2. Please look forward to February 1, 2018.” Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
