So is Persona 5 in development? It has to be since it’s one of the biggest series Atlus has got. Index Corporation which owns Atlus has grabbed a domain called Persona 5, which kind of hints that the game is definitely planned.
We don’t know whether it’s true just based on a domain registration since companies do a lot of defensive registrations, but a new persona game has been due for a long time now.
Check out the details of the domain below:
[Domain Name] PERSONA5.JP
[Registrant] Index corporation.
[Name Server] dns1.onamae.com
[Name Server] dns2.onamae.com
[Created on] 2013/06/25
[Expires on] 2014/06/30
[Last Updated] 2013/06/25 16:39:27 (JST)
The domain was created recently which kind of validates that this could not be a defensive domain registration. It could also have been done to hasten the game’s arrival since Index has filed for bankruptcy and need cash fast.
They have said that this news won’t affect Atlus, but who knows. At least fans can look forward to a new Persona game.
