Persona 5 Royal developer Atlus’ Steam page updated its “my games” section from 13 to 14, indicating the incoming PC release of a title from the team’s lineup.
Just what game, though? Well, on November 4th, Atlus put up a listing up for a “Project Pen” on the Australian Government Classification Database. According to that database, both Project Pen and Persona 5 Royal have received the same rating. This indicates that the codenamed project shares the same content as Persona 5 Royal.
With the success of Persona 4 releasing on Steam in 2020, it’s not much of a surprise that Atlus would want to continue porting the series over to PC.
It’s possible that Persona 5 would actually outperform Persona 4. Given that P5 was the best-selling game in the entire franchise and helped elevate it into the mainstream.
However, it’s also possible that this incoming PC release is actually a port of the recently released Shin Megami Tensei V.
According to a data mine of SMTV, the Switch exclusive’s code contains references to both PC PS4. So, it’s entirely possible that we will be seeing that instead of a Persona 5 port on both PC and PlayStation.
It’s unlikely that we will have to wait long to discover what the new port is going to be, though. The Game Awards are happening this Thursday and promise to bring a whole bunch of new trailers and announcements.
So, chances are that we get the news that Persona 5 is coming to PC then. Especially considering that Persona 5 was widely celebrated on the award show when it was first released.
All of this is just speculation, though. All we know is that Atlus is making room on its Steam page for “Project Pen”, so think of that what you will.
