Atlus USA Shuts Down Persona 5 For PC and Xbox One Rumor, Says It Won’t Happen


Persona 5 is currently confirmed for a release on PS3 and PS4 this Summer in Japan. It was originally set for a release as a PS3 exclusive in Winter 2014 which was then later delayed to 2015. Atlus then added PS4 as a platform along with PS3 and the game was delayed to Summer 2016 in Japan.

The official Persona 5 website was hacked recently by a fan who added the PC version of the game as a new addition to the website along with a fake release date. This was quickly proved to be false as people caught on the hack and it was removed by Atlus. After this hack, Atlus USA PR was quick to talk about it on Twitter mentioning how he had a chat with the web security team to make sure that incidents like this don’t happen again.

He was then approached by a fan asking if it was possible to get Persona 5 on the PC. John Hardin stressed that from what he has heard, that won’t happen. He repeated the same to another fan asking about a potential Xbox One version of the game.


So if you had any hope of getting Persona 5 on either the Xbox One or PC, you better drop it. Persona 5 will be released this Summer for the PS3 and PS4 in Japan. The game still hasn’t received a confirmed release date but Atlus is currently hosting a livestream on May 5th that might reveal the official date in Japan, and possibly worldwide as well.

    So if i want to play this game i have to buy a ps4?? Hilarious.. i own a pc and i dont want any console.. im fine with it even if il never play persona in my life. I wont spend 300 euros on a bloody console just to play a game.. u keep going on that direction .

  • Nintengods

    Can’t wait for the salty tears when it gets announced for NX from the $onygimps.

  • bubbz

    like netherealm, so many are dropping the pc NOT because you are a pc gamer, it’s that most developers HATE MICROSOFT! At some point, i too will have to sell my pc for a SONY PS4,THERE ARE NO FIGHTING GAMES ON STEAMOS & MICROSOFT SUCKS ASS!!

  • Nicholas Lewis

    the comment bar says join the discussion… but all I can see is a bunch of fucking children fighting over which platform is best. GROW THE FUCK UP. You aren’t better than me for owning something I don’t, I can be mildly upset that in order to play a game that I really love i have to buy console that, unless it is to play this game, i could literally give two shits over. Some people have conflicting opinions. Get over it

  • Shinji Ikari

    Who need shite like this.I hope you enjoy your cinematic experience boys and girls 14 fps.

    PC Begging Race

    • crazysapertonight

      Console begging race)

      • how ya doin?

        PC begging race. Console gamers have never begged at all.

        • noahboah1112

          They literally showed a XBOX 1 player asking for the game -_-

        • Pirocas is back

          What about xcom? Are you sure they ve never begged?

  • John Franco

    Altus was NEVER into PC gaming, so why bother. Way more games to consider besides Persona 5… with a sudden surge of other JRPGs coming to PC (God Eater 1 & 2, Tales of Berseria on the current horizon). Relax PS4 fanboys… Persona 5 was NEVER coming to PC in the first place. As a PC gamer, this was NEVER on my agenda nor did I have any expectations. Later!

    • crazysapertonight

      LOL) I used PS2 emulator to play Persona 4 on PC fullHD/60fps)

      Though I still think, Persona 5 will come to PC oficially

      • Axcel ctw

        hope so but not likely. vita might have p5. there is never a smt game on pc ever. also it seems emulation is getting harder to crack nowadays. not even 3ds got a perfect emulation while the nds emulation came out fairly quickly.

        • Anti-Cliche

          it’s all about the console tho, 3ds is hard to emulate but wii u emulation is pretty advanced considering that it’s still an 8th gen console.

  • robert

    Great news! i hate jrpg’s!

  • Great news!
    Stop begging, buy PS4 and enjoy greatness~!

    • AVtechNICK .

      Selfish idiots…

      • Owh look, a beggar!

        • Reggie

          LMAO I’ve got a PS4 behind me (brother’s PS4) and holy shit I have no clue how you guys manage to be happy paying 60 buckaroos to GO ON THE INTERNET YOU ALREADY PAY FOR

          we may be the PC (PetitionC) players, but atleast we don’t pay twice to use things we’re already paying for :^)

          • Cause we are not poor beggar like you.

          • Skorge

            Because mommy will buy the Ponies their games

          • Aww~ poor beggar who cannot afford both good PC and a PS4~

          • Skorge

            Rid Vesalius: Mooooommy buy me new game T__T

          • Awww, unlike you beggar who begs allowance from mommy,
            Im the who give mommy money every month~

          • Skorge

            Awww the little fat kid is mad that his mom bought him a PS4 when he wanted an Xbox. DOn’t worry Rid, I’ll get you one for Christmas, just make sure you get those grades up 😛

          • James Stuller

            No one like XBOX because games run at 12fps LMAO ps4 run games at 60fps

          • Skorge

            LMAO Xbox has more 1080p 60fps games than PS4. Bloodborne = 20 fps. Corridor 1886 = 18 fps. UnFarted Bore = 26 FPS

            You = retarded, go play your weeb trash game and go beat off to your anime characters you obese unemployed virgin.

          • James Stuller

            there is not single game on Xbox ONE that run at 1080P all them run at 720p some 900p. Uncharted 4 run at ultra pc setting 1080p no xbox game can even match uncharted 4. All them games you run ultra 1080p that why they have low fps it because of AMD. PS4 NEO will fix this by have intel i7 6700k and Nvidia GTX 1050.

          • Skorge

            LMAO all the Forza’s are 1080p, Gears is going to run at 1080p, most multiplats run at 1080p

            UnFarted runs at 22 fps and when Scorpio comes out and makes Neo look obsolete, Scorpio games will make UnFarted and all Neo games look like PS2 games

            You’re terrified and it’s hilarious 😀

          • Mr Xrat

            Xbone games already look like PS2 games, Scourge0. That’s how they barely manage 1080p.

          • Nintengods

            P$4 can’t even hold 1080P 30FPS either. Sad!

            Plan your exit bag when the NX is announced, Paul 🙂

          • Cats Dogs

            I agree Xbone looks like ps2 games in hd when ps4 look true next gen.

      • Vallen


    • crazysapertonight

      PS4 is already outdated. You sould wait for PS4K)

      • James Stuller

        PS4 neo will have i7 6th gen 8 core cpu Nvidia GTX 1050 8GB gddr5 RAM.

    • Casper

      So when I have a much better system, much more powerful to play this game I should buy a PS4, you are an idiot, a damn fool if you think limiting this game in potiental is good news, you are not a gamer, you are a Sony fanboy

      • Vallen

        If you’re talking about the PC, just pirate and emulate it, that’s all you PC people are good for, theft.

        If you’re talking about XBONE, lol, “more powerful” ahahaha

        • Whxian

          because consoles are safe from piracy

          • Mulatto_Fury

            Actually, it’s just easier to pirate games on PC compared to console. In the heyday of the X360 and PS3, there was actually just as much piracy going on as there was on PC and when the Xbone and PS4 are cracked(if they haven’t been already) you’ll see the same thing.

          • Whxian

            did not expect a comment reply almost a month later… but i hope you realize that was a sarcastic comment, ofcourse there was piracy on x360 & ps3.

        • CoolingGibbon

          Really? Please do elaborate on how all PC gamers are pirates. I’m a PC gamer who buys all his games so I’m genuinely curious. And since you have made such an accusation, frankly I feel kinda hurt, boohoo. Now you better be a good little console kiddie and come up with a proper explanation for ol’ times’ sake, before you know… I put you back in your place and teach you how not to open your little console whoremouth regarding matters you’re not familiar with. Okay, champ?

          • Vallen

            Get lost boy, you little keyboard warriors are laughable. “Gonna put me in my place” HAH

          • CoolingGibbon

            Backing out so soon?

          • Vallen

            Bite me, boy.

          • CoolingGibbon

            No thanks, I’ll need to get rid of the smell of peasantry afterwards.

          • Vallen


          • TL:DR, Son, wanna play the game? Stop begging, buy PS4 and enjoy greatness.

        • Mulatto_Fury

          “that’s all you PC people are good for, theft.”

          I guess that’s why the amount of money generated from PC game sales just keeps on going up and up, eh? All those pirates. You fucking autist.

          • Vallen

            Come at me, little shit.

          • Mulatto_Fury

            It must be absolutely exhausting to be this autistic.

          • Vallen

            You should know

          • Mulatto_Fury

            Oh, man. That’s a good one. And it only took you 3 days to retort.

          • Vallen

            I don’t sit behind a computer 24/7. Go outside, it’s good for you.

          • PC Master Race

            When did weebs like you get so triggered easily? I mean, this is all but just an article over a video game no where as solid enough to have a salty response as “Come at me, little shit.”

            You do also know that PC isn’t the only device used for pirating hmm???

          • Vallen

            I’m just trolling at this point? You took the bait.

        • Bryce Quintin

          You know that you can buy a copy of the PS3 Version, and then emulate that?

          I plan on buying a copy and playing the game through RPCS3 myself.

      • And you’re a poor beggar. I’ve a very powerful PC too, but i’m not a poor beggar like you.

        Want the exclusives, buy the consoles, stop begging, work hard, buy the PS4 and enjoy greatness.

        • Casper

          Who says I’m poor, I’d rather have the option to play a great game on a great machine you moron, and not a piss poor machine with mediocre specs,
          Me wanting the game on PC has nothing to do with me not having enough money to buy a PS4 you fucking idiot.

          • Haha, beggar, keep begging. Too bad you gonna miss lots of awesome games~

            Most console owners have a PC that can play almost all PC games. But PC beggars cant play any consoles exclusives. In the end, console owners win~~

          • Casper

            But in the end the gamers don’t win because our awesome games are limited see GTA V that game is 1000x better on PC than it is on console

          • Alvin Wijaya

            i guess you’re right. we’ll see

          • Cats Dogs

            GTA 5 better on pc because cheep laptops with intel hd 520 max gtx setting and get 120fps. but can other games do this on i3-6100u with intel hd 520?

          • matics27

            You know making assumptions of others is about as ignorant as it gets. I suggest you grow up with that child-like mentality of yours.

          • Stop begging, buy PS4 and enjoy greatness.

          • Reggie

            shill lmfao

          • Austin Huskey

            I own a ps4 and you’re still an asshole, grow up man.

          • Skorge

            Buy a PS4 and enjoy mediocre JRPG’s and 3rd person action/adventure games and…and….that’s about it.

          • ToryFuryz

            Why tf are all your comments calling people children?You litearly told some one befor who are they to tell people what they can or can’t say on the internet when u do the same thing all the fking time? if some one needs to grow up then its you

          • Gurnlei

            loling at ‘Most console owners have a PC that can play almost all PC games’

          • Mario Sacconi

            i have some doubts. An awesome PC is way more expensive than a PS4, Mine is over 1000$… People buying consoles don’t want to spend money for a high end pc…

          • Gurnlei

            Exactly. Rid however thinks most console gamers have a gaming PC too.

        • Tyler “Stereotypicaldeathcorek

          Rid you have 3 days before I dox your internet be prepared

    • Kidd

      Game SUCKS Anyway!!!!!!!!!!! ENJOY

        this is bait

      YEAH! ps4 master race!
      pc peasants LOL

    • CoolingGibbon

      My my, Sony’s consolewhore took the time to put the dick down and type out a comment about how Sony’s cock tastes so great~~~! A wondrous miracle!

      • Aww, why so salty?~

        • CoolingGibbon

          Not so much salty as mildly fascinated by console wankery.

    • Mulatto_Fury

      Stop being a sony fanboy and understand that a multi-platform release can only help the game in the long run.

      • Nah, stop begging, stop being poor, work hard, buy Ps4 and enjoy greatness.

        • Mulatto_Fury

          I already own a PS4, but seeing as it is terribly outdated in comparison to my PC, I would much rather play games on the system that has the best graphics, frame rate and isn’t limited.

          You wanna talk about greatness? PC MASTER RACE, motherfucker.

          • You mean PC BEGGAR RACE, retard!~~~
            Lol, i too have a powerful gaming PC, but i never beg like you retarded beggars~
            Godlike Gamer Race ftw~!

          • Mulatto_Fury

            I’m not begging. In any capacity. I’m not going to make demands of a company or give them shit for not making their release multiplatform, but I still find it stupid that in this day and age, with the increased costs of development where you need as many sales as possible just to break even(let alone make a profit), that any game company wouldn’t release their game on as many platforms as possible.

          • PC Master Race

            Just remember you autistic cuck, Persona 5 was made by PC. You console peasants keep on forgetting about that.

          • Lol retard, i have a powerful gaming pc thank you very much~

          • PC Master Race

            Lol, that was easy!

          • But im not a retarded beggar race like you. Ive consoles too~ Enjoy both~

          • PC Master Race

            Hey kid, I got a game to develop. Go cry to someone else like you. Bye.

          • Son, only a PC beggar race like you is crying~

          • Finn gaming

            Lol, lmao i’m speechless… kid
            oh and speak english xD the salt is too strong with this kid.

          • PC Master Race

            Without PC your console games would have never existed!

          • Skorge

            What’s your Steam ID then?

        • Wolf Akuma

          Well then “Rid Vesalius” You dont work. Your obsessed with transformers and star wars you live in Malaysia and the only tech you own is sony crap with a medium spec pc with what i can only tell is a minumum 16gb ram. You have taken a couple trips to japan and are currently located in akita oh your religion is also Islamic and we yet again seem to have a damned dead father sob story.. So lets see what to do with you.



          Hows about this.

          Go back to working on the side of the world trade center, get a better pc before you claim to be able to run everything, GET A JOB before you call people poor and for fucks sake put some flowers on that grave you fucking bellend.

          • Eww, a stalker.
            Going all the troubles to create a new account and a research about me, still most of the infos are wrong wahaha~

    • zrex2metagor

      Begger? Boy the for the price of my laptop you could buy 4 ps4s. Pray why exactly would I buy a ps4 for a handful of exclusives? Most exclusives are japanese releases only, and the few that do come out in the NA, are hardly worth buying a console over. I have a ps3 and I barely ever play on it, even in the days where consoles used to get a lot more exclusives than the PC. Plus, your slab of plastic brick cant even play past gen games, why would I pay like a peasant to own a slab of a peasant brick? Beggers? You console peasants are the very epitome of beggary. Since you fools cant even afford a decent rig, you go and call others as beggars. As for you owning a decent rig that can play all games……..I call bull shit, pathetic beggers like you will never spend on a decent rig. How’d you buy that ps4? Mommy made some nighty money and bought you your toy?

      • TL:DR, Son, wanna play the game? Stop begging, buy PS4 and enjoy greatness~

        • Nicholas Lewis

          Is this literally all you do? sit around and spout Play Station propaganda all day? I’m surprised Sony hasn’t contacted you about a job in advertising because you are a master at it boy.
