Atlus is already thinking about Persona 6

But the studio needs more creatives to be included in the dev team.

Persona 5 has been a success for Atlus both critically and in terms of sales, and it appears as if the developer isn't done with the series, as the company's CEO Naoto Hiraoka has published a job listing (translated by PersonaCentral) saying that the studio is looking for creative people to be included in the team that will develop Persona 6. Here's what Hiraoka writes:

"Unfortunately, the hurdles to overcome [in-game development] increase every year."

"Thanks to the large amount of support we received for "Persona 5," we have gotten a sense of accomplishment. But we can't stop there. When we created "Persona 4," there was pressure that it had to exceed "Persona 3." Now, we will have to create a "6" which exceeds "5." However, exceeding "5" will be difficult with the current staff. I would like to surpass this tall hurdle with everyone who joins us in this recruitment. The workplace is perfect for those who want a creative challenge when it comes to bringing games to the world".

We're pleased to hear Atlus is seriously considering continuing the Persona series, as we liked Persona 5 a lot. Do you think 5 is the best in the series so far?

REVIEW. Written by Anders Baad Mai

"The narrative is courageous, the characters complex, the battle system refined, and it's all wrapped up in one of the most stylish games we've ever had the pleasure of getting lost in."
