The mysterious Persona 5 R could be revealed soon.
The domain P5R.jp was created in April 2017 and since then the community has been speculating whether it is the name of a possible extended and improved version of Persona 5 – the equivalent of the Golden version of Persona 4.
Atlus did not share anything about this domain and remained focused on promoting and launching games like Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight, Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight and Persona Q2: New Shadow Labyrinth.
Interestingly, the websites for these three games were created and registered in the same week that the P5R.jp website was created and registered.
Now, Atlus has transferred these sites to its own servers, taking them out of the hands of Onamae – the company it usually uses to register its domains.
This suggests an imminent announcement of Persona 5R as Atlus’ track record indicates that within 6 to 8 days after passing the domains to their servers, the official announcement is made.
On December 30 the anime Persona 5 the Animation: Dark Sun will be presented and the community speculates that we will have the announcement of the new game that day.
