Bandai Namco has issued a brief statement on social media regarding “hacking” in the console editions of Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2 and potential account bans coming to offending players:

XV2 Players: We’re aware of hacking issues currently plaguing the console version. In order to preserve the integrity of the game as it was originally designed, action will be taken upon those who hack XV2; this may include the possibility of being banned from the game. Thank you

This follows an “anti-cheat” update to the PC edition of the game announced last October. Specific “hacks” within the game have included assigning unobtainable special moves to personal characters (from raid bosses, non-playable characters, etc.), high-value “QQ bangs” (special accessories that increase stats over the base clothing), and other health/attack/defense modifiers.

Developed by Dimps for Bandai Namco, Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2 is available worldwide for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC (via Steam), and Switch. In North America, the game launched for consoles 25 October 2016 with a PC release following 28 October 2016. In Europe, the game launched across all platforms 28 October 2016. In Japan, the game launched on the PlayStation 4 console 02 November 2016. The Nintendo Switch port was released in Japan and internationally in September 2017.
