Such a shame .hack is being killed off. Everyone who played and enjoyed the series always hoped for an eventual online component to play "The World."

The series has a very well developed universe and a great fan following that could only get bigger if they tried to up the ante with a new console release. I hope this development team comes up with some new awesome RPG series to take its place or one day comes back and makes "The World" MMO we all wish existed. :)

i never felt that need for an actual online component .

I actually played .HACK because it was a great fictional work and "parody" , where you play a mmo player , with bordeline supernatural events (or rather bugs and glitches here) .

I dont see the interest in making it an actual mmo , or close to it , and then loosing it's uniqueness .
Once online it will only look inferior to actual MMOs or games like Monster hunter .

In fact the already existing online Hack game sucked hard .

Otherwise yeah the serie was awesome .
At least let's hope it will comeback as a new game someday .

I believe 10 years later there will be a hack game where you wear googles and play inside the WORLD. That would be the most awesome MMO ever.

well, there was actually a version of the original games where you could play with 2 other people from a lobby and quest in a keyword area. it was called Fragment. didnt sell amazingly in japan and they never ported it over here. but ya...ive been a long time .hack fanboy since the original anime and games aired, i remember waiting for the next releases eagerly for months with the first games. im very sad to see the end of it, i really loved it...maybe some of the stuf that didnt make it over here will get brought over in the future
