Atlus is telling fans not to expect Persona 6 or any new game announcements at next month’s big Persona Super Live P-Sound 2022 show. The studio appears to be sticking to the tradition of lengthy development cycles between each new Persona game. Persona 5 Royal is expected to hit PS5 and Xbox Series X/S this October.
The Persona Super Live P-Sound 2022 will take place in Japan in October, featuring various musicians that have composed music across the Persona series. The series’ voice actors will also be joining the festivities to perform on stage. The show is typically a celebration of all things Persona, though fans hoping to see the next mainline entry in the franchise might be disappointed.

Back in July last year, Atlus seemingly confirmed that Persona 6 was already well in development, but didn’t elaborate any further. The company has since taken to releasing Persona 5‘s many follow-up projects, including Persona 5 Royal which features expanded story content and Persona 5 Strikers, a Musou action game that narratively served as a sequel to the base game.
Atlus has now released a statement on its Persona Channel website, reading, “Please note that there will be no announcement of new game titles at this live event.”
Persona 5 Royal will receive an enhanced version for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S on 21 October 2022. This edition will include over 40 DLC items from the base game for free, with many costumes themed after legacy Persona characters. Unfortunately, players who already own the game on PS4 won’t be able to upgrade it to PS5, meaning fans will have to purchase the game again.
This also marks the first time that Persona 5 will appear on Xbox consoles as it’s heading to Xbox Series X/S and Xbox Game Pass on launch next month. Remasters for Persona 4 Golden and Persona 3 Portable were also announced by Atlus, but don’t have any release dates yet.
