Persona 5

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?
