Persona 6

Even though there hasn’t been an official announcement about the game, many rumors are circulating around it because of the previous version’s success.

The makers have produced a remake and spin-off of the 5th edition, not anything more. Nevertheless, leakers state that the game has been under development a long time ago.

It is expected that the new game will have a similar storytelling pattern that the earlier versions of games have established but with some hidden and potentially revealing clues that will be unveiled as the game progresses.

Details leaked by a reliable source

Many reports suggest various paths the developers- Atlus could go in, out of which one that remains highly speculative is the leaked logo from a reliable source Midori.

The logo P and 6 are intertwined, suggested the leaker and he says that it could be an indicator of the games’s relationship with the philosophies of Yin and Yang. This may not be the final version of the logo.

Taking into consideration the history of betrayals and surprises of the previous versions this theme of polarization may not be the final one. But it can establish some recognizable yet fascinating character relationships.

Midori has also provided another pointer that the game will be released in 2025 or early 2026 through his tweet in ‘X’

Rapid Sales and Positive Market Response

Chief director of Persona Studio Kazuhisa Wada in an interview with Persona Central in 2018 said that the company was developing mid to long-term plans, including new entries. Ever since then, there has been a hint, the company has given small indicators for the mainstream release.

Persona 5’s sales went past 10 million this year and Persona 3 became the fastest-selling game in the history of Atlus, with over 1 million copies sold in a week.

Atlus has been releasing Persona content at a much faster rate recently- Persona 5 Tactica, Persona 3 Reload, and Persona 5: The Phantom X’s China-exclusive open beta. All of this contributes to the fact that Persona 6 release is inevitable

There is a good chance that the game won’t be PlayStation-exclusive

In the past, Persona mainstream games were only released on PlayStation. However, over the last few years, the company’s focus has shifted gradually from Sony’s platform.

The company has been trending toward publishing its big games on as many platforms as possible since it decided to distribute Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal on PC, Xbox, and Switch.

Persona 3 Reload was also added to the Xbox game pass in addition to being available on PS5, PC, and Xbox.

Metaphor ReFantazio, the team’s upcoming major release, is all set to launch this autumn on all major platforms. Persona 6 could be their first mainstream release on multiple platforms targeting a wider audience.

Atlus will be expecting Persona 6 to be their best release

Persona 5 was the game that attracted a massive crowd and took the gaming experience to a whole new level.

Even if the earlier releases had a loyal fanbase, Persona 5 is considered one of the greatest role-playing games of the modern era with millions of copies sold worldwide.

It’s not simple to keep up with a game this influential, so Atlus will need to put in a lot of effort to make Persona 6 their greatest hit.

Persona Central translated a job recruitment page that Atlus had released back in 2017. There were several employee interviews, including one with Naoto Hiraoka, the director of the studio in addition to job advertisements for different positions inside the company.

Naoto said in the interview that the team’s objective is to create a Persona 6 that could overtake what has Persona 5 done.

He also mentioned that it seems very difficult with the current number of employees to execute such a task at hand.

A green color scheme is most likely to be used in the game

The vivid eye-catching artwork of Persona games is one of their main attraction. Every game embodies the Persona aesthetic in a very unique color scheme.

Persona 3 used a lot of blue, Persona 4 used a more upbeat yellow, and Persona 5 used a chaotic red. It appears like the creators of Persona 6 want to give the series a bit more greenery.

Possibility of Plot Twist and Yin and Yang Theme

Gamers who have played various Persona series narratives will probably know about the surprising turns that have appeared in every mainstream Persona game—a feature that, unfortunately, has become a lot more predictable. These have grown especially common since the third game.

Assuming the fact that Yin and Yang will be the protagonists, there appears a lot of possibilities for a similar predictable scenario.

To make an element of surprise to players the assumed positions could be challenged and reversed. One could stand for Yin and the other for Yang.

The focus so far has been on death and treachery, so one of the protagonists might also have a hidden agenda and switch sides.

Despite a lot of excitement for the upcoming Persona installment, Atlus continues to keep silent on any updates.

Even though it is not officially confirmed, comments from recognized sources and reliable leaks suggest that a new mainstream entry is just around the corner.

Following the success of previous editions, especially Persona 3 and Persona 5 we can expect a potential launch around 2025 or 2026, aligning with the series’ 30th anniversary.

With pieces of information, hints, and leaks portray an exciting picture of a disruptive Persona 6 arrival. Fans impatiently await further announcements, confident that Atlus will propel the boundaries of gameplay and storytelling in Persona 6.
