New Digimon Story Game Now in Development

Another game in the Digital Monsters series has been revealed to be in development.

In an interview with 4Gamer.net, producer Kazumasa Haba revealed that another Digimon Story game, separate from the upcoming Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Hacker’s Memory, is currently in development.

After discussing the success of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth both in Japan and overseas and how the PlayStation 4 version Digimon World: Next Order is a port of the PlayStation Vita version, Haba revealed:

“It would have been made based on PlayStation 4 hardware, but then we would have had to rebuild the game engine for PlayStation 4, as well redo the graphics. If we did that, it would take about three to four years to make a good game from scratch. In that case, it would have been quite a long gap from Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth.

We consider “not dampening the fans’ enthusiasm” extremely important in continuing the Digimon IP, and for that reason it is important to regularly offer content.

So, while working on a completely new Digimon Story project, I thought I could offer a new story that depicts another side of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth called Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Hacker’s Memory as not to dampen the fans’ enthusiasm.”

After being asked to clarify his previous statement, Haba then continued:

“Regarding Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Hacker’s Memory, officially we refer to it a “new title in the Cyber Sleuth series” rather than “new title in the Digimon Story series,” and in reality there is reason for that. That includes my desire to reliably provide content for fans who enjoyed the previous titles.”

No other information is known about this new Digimon Story title, but we will continue updating as more is revealed. Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Hacker’s Memory will be out for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on December 14 in Japan and on January 19, 2018, in North America and Europe.
