These Persona live concert events have already been used by Atlus as a platform for announce new titles. The first took place in 2015 and debuted Persona 4: Dancing All Night. In 2017, Atlus revealed Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight, as well as Persona Q2, during the concert. During the 2019 concert, Persona 5 Royal and Persona 5 Strikers were announced.
It seemed logical to assume that Atlus might also make a new game announcement at this year’s concert. However, Atlus now expects there won’t be anything like it next month. It looks like fans will have to wait longer for something like a Persona 6 or Persona 5 Arena reveal.
Atlus is celebrating Persona’s 25th anniversary, and Atlus has teased seven related announcements to commemorate it. These announcements were a remaster of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, as well as the reveal that Persona 5 Royal, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 3 Portable would be coming to new platforms including Nintendo Switch, PC, and Xbox.
