With Persona 5 Tactica in November and Persona 3 Reload early next year, there’s plenty for fans of Atlus’ beloved RPG franchise to look forward to, but of course, there have been rumblings of the next mainline game in the instalment being in the works as well. And though previous leaks have claimed that Persona 6 could potentially launch as a PlayStation exclusive the way Persona games have traditionally done in the past, it seems that might not be the case after all.
That’s according to XboxEra co-founder Nick Baker, who recently said in an episode of the XboxEra Podcast that based on the information he’s received, Persona 6 won’t be an exclusive, and will also be available on Xbox consoles at launch.
The last year or so has, of course, seen the Persona series finally expanding beyond PlayStation platforms with its mainline instalments, with Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal all having come to additional platforms, so Persona 6 coming to Xbox at launch doesn’t entirely come as a surprise. Whether or not it will also be available on Game Pass at launch the way the aforementioned games have been remains to be seen- Baker says he hasn’t heard anything to that effect for now, for what it’s worth.
Meanwhile, Persona 5 Tactica is due out on November 17 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, while Persona 3 Reload will launch early 2024 for all those platforms except the Switch.
