CyberConnect2 Co., Ltd. (サイバーコネクトツー, Saibā Konekuto Tsū) is a video game development studio mostly known for its work on the .hack series, along with a series of fighting games based on the Naruto franchise. They're also known for creating the spiritual Little Tail Bronx series (e.g. Tail Concerto and Solatorobo: Red the Hunter). They are currently developing Final Fantasy VII Remake with Square Enix.
CyberConnect2 was first formed on February 16, 1996 as "CyberConnect" but on September 16, 2001, it was renamed "CyberConnect2". On October 3, 2007, CyberConnect2 changed their logo and decided to expand their production beyond games, beginning with the formation of "Sensible Art Innovation" to create the .hack//G.U. Trilogy, and LieN to compose the music.
CyberConnect2 is currently working on three projects for current generation consoles. The first is Final Fantasy VII Remake, described in CyberConnect2's March 2015 Famitsu job advertisement as a photo-realistic role-playing game targeted at the international market being built using Unreal Engine 4 involving physics-based rendering. The second is open world. The third involves virtual reality.
CyberConnect2 also produced two computer animated films for the .hack franchise. The first one, .hack//G.U. Trilogy, is an adaptation of the .hack//G.U. games and was released in December 2007. The second film is .hack//The Movie released on January 21, 2012.
