‘The only thing I can confirm is Persona 5 for 2015.’

I’m starting to lose hope that Persona 5 will ever actually release, let alone in 2015. We haven’t officially heard anything about the game for a very long time now, and considering that even the Japanese release for the game seems to be up in the air right now, a 2015 release date for Persona 5 in North America looks very unlikely to me.
That said, Atlus USA’s John Hardin is holding strong in his insistence that Persona 5 is indeed going to make it out in 2015 in North America and possibly even Europe. In an interview with God Is A Geek, that was what he just reiterated.
“We are trying to get publishers locked in for our titles in EU and will announce things when they are locked in. We don’t want another Shin Megami Tensei IV or Devil Survivor Overclocked situation. We are very aware of what happens when we make premature announcements for Europe. At least I am. The only thing I can confirm for Persona 5 is 2015.”
We are halfway through August right now- this leaves just four more months in 2015. Guys, now might be a good time to announce a release month at the very least, if nothing else.
