Persona 5 Delayed Until 2016
Atlus has confirmed that Persona 5 will not be releasing in 2015 as originally planned. Instead, the game will release in the summer of 2016 in Japan.
Persona 5 was expected to release in North America and Japan for PS3 and PS4 on the same day in 2015. However, now it is unsure whether the North American version will arrive in the summer of 2016, as no revised release date for the West has been announced.
Although the delay will be disappointing to fans of the series, it cannot come as a complete surprise. Despite Atlus’ earlier announcement that the game was going to release in 2015, they never provided a specific date.
As a small consolation, Atlus released a new Japanese-language trailer for the game, which you can watch below.
