It’s been nearly seven years since the Japanese launch of Persona 5, and though Atlus has obviously released a number of games spawning from the RPG in the years since then, hunger for a new mainline entry in the beloved RPG series is growing by the day. Atlus said a couple of years ago that it was at work on Persona 6, but when exactly might we see it?
According to insider NateTheHate, it might not be terribly far away. Speaking during a recent episode of his podcast, the insider claimed that Persona 6 is set to launch in late 2024, and that it’s likely to be exclusive to PS5, which isn’t something we’re hearing for the first time. Unlike Persona 5, which launched as a cross-gen title for both PS3 and PS4, Persona 6 will allegedly be skipping PS4. However, NateTheHate does say that there’s a chance that Persona 6 does end up coming to Xbox consoles some time after launch.
And when exactly will it be unveiled? According to the insider, the game was originally set to be announced late last year, but since its launch was still a ways off at the time, Atlus decided to delay its unveiling. He speculates that the game is likely to be unveiled later this year, potentially at Tokyo Game Show in September. So if you were hoping for an announcement at the imminent PlayStation Showcase, it doesn’t seem like that’s going to happen.
Earlier this year, it was claimed that a reveal for the RPG was planned for this Summer.
Meanwhile, NateTheHate has also claimed that a remake of Persona 3 is due out later this year and will be announced at the Xbox Games Showcase. Read more on that through here.
