In 2023, Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden were released for all modern consoles. According to some rumors, it won’t be the only Persona content fans are getting this year. Here is everything we know about the highly anticipated Persona 6.

Persona is a popular series of RPG games that have captivated audiences since 1996. Atlus, the developer behind the series, has consistently released games. Atlus tends to revisit its games and release enhanced versions, in the middle, they drop the occasional new game. The perfect example is Persona 4, which came out between the releases of Persona 3 FES and Persona 3 Portable.

It’s been six years since the release of Persona 5, which has three additional versions, including Persona 5 Royal. Needless to say, we’re due for a new Persona game, and it might be coming sooner than expected.

Persona 6 is yet to be confirmed by Atlus, but if the rumors hold any truth, the game might be far along in production.

Persona 6 release date

There isn’t a confirmed release date for Persona 6. According to the rumors, the announcement of the game could happen next summer. The leaker, who fans believe to be a credible source, shared that the announcement keeps getting pushed. Fans are speculating that an announcement for Persona 6 could’ve taken place during the 25th celebration in October 2022.

If the game is announced during the summer, we could be working with a winter release. Meaning that Persona 6 could come out in 2023 unless Atlus delays the game for 2024.

The rumors also talked about a Persona 3 remake. It is unclear if it will be a full remake of the game or just a remastered version of the original game. Players are disappointed with the most recent version of Persona 3 Portable, which they consider to be a mediocre adaptation.

What is Persona 6 about?

We don’t have a plot yet, but we can speculate based on previous installments in the series. Our main character is likely to be a high school student who recently transferred to the school. There will be a group that assists them as they face a great evil. These are the basics of a Persona plot.

The game will have social elements and combat. The interesting part will be all the new elements that Atlus is adding to Persona 6. At this point, the developer understands what works for the players and what parts they dislike.

 Can I play Persona 6 on PlayStation 4?

Persona 6 is most likely coming out for PlayStation 4. This series is primarily designed for PlayStation, with other platforms as a secondary focus. Considering the success Persona 5 Royal had with Nintendo Switch players, we could see the first multi-platform release in Persona’s history.

Persona 6 could be the first game to be released for multiple platforms at the same time, or PlayStation players will get the privilege to play it first. Regardless of which route Atlus decides to take, the game will come out for other platforms at some point.
