A quartet of RPGs originally released on the PS2 (subtitled Infection, Mutation, Outbreak, and Quarantine) that served as an entry in the long-running .hack series. Playing as Kite, players were swept into a web of intrigue as they delved into the supernatural comings and goings of The World, a fictional MMORPG. While the latter .hack//GU trilogy went on to overshadow the IMOQ, there is still a lot of fan-drive in seeing the IMOQ games ported to any of the modern consoles—moreso since the .hack//GU games have been ported and given HD remasters.
Upon being asked by NoisyPixel, vice-president Miyazaki stated that whether or not the IMOQ games get ported is outside of Cyber Connect 2's hands—Bandai Namco owns the IP, so fans would have to direct their wishes at them, which Miyazaki supports, even! The vice president said, "We urge the readers to fire away all the requests to them so that we can get the green light from them to work on those titles." Fans have taken his words to heart, using the Twitter hashtag "#dothack" to tweet about their affection for .hack and to voice their wishes that the IMOQ games get ported. Best of all, there's official support—Cyber Connect 2's official localizer, Till Stiehl, has replied and retweeted many of these tagged posts. He's also called fans to throw in their support, emphasizing that even being a studio, Cyber Connect 2 is "just one voice," and Bandai Namco is far more receptive to a greater crowd of voices.
