With the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase set for later today, there have already been a plethora of rumors and reports. Bethesda’s Starfield is a major part of the show as per insider Tom Henderson. He noted in a recent stream that it would take up about 20 to 25 percent of the showcase (which has a runtime of 95 minutes).
However, it seems there could be a Persona-related announcement as well. At one point in the same stream, Henderson was asked if he had any news on Persona 5 Royal for PC. He responded, “I’m not going to leak the entire showcase” before laughing. This seems to imply that it could be coming to PC via Game Pass (and Steam as well). An Xbox release would make sense as well but there’s more.
The Snitch, a Twitter user who leaked the release date for The Last of Us Part 1, posted a rather cryptic tweet stating, “P3R5ON4.” This seems to indicate that Persona 3, 4 and 5 could also be at the showcase. If that weren’t enough, XboxEra co-founder Nick Baker retweeted The Snitch, saying “took them long enough” and outright spelling out that Persona 3, Persona 4 Golden and Persona 5 Royal would be at the show.
Persona 4 Golden is already available on PC so it may be announced for Game Pass and potentially release for Xbox platforms. Persona 5 Royal could be bound for PC and Xbox while the rumored Persona 3 remaster may finally be revealed for the same platforms (and PlayStation as well, of course).
The Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase is set for 10 AM PT today. As always, we’ll need to wait for official confirmation so stay tuned in the meantime.
