Sega to publish future Atlus video games

persona-5

Back in 2013, Sega purchased Atlus’ parent company Index Corporation, making Atlus an official part of Sega. Shortly after the news was announced about the acquisition, Sega’s CEO reassured fans that Atlus would act independently as it always has. This means you wouldn’t see any changes pushed by Sega in Persona 5, Odin Sphere and any other Atlus games planned for release.

Today we have learned that there will be one change. Sega officially confirmed that it would be now publishing all of Atlus’s future releases. Sega confirmed this is being done in order to streamline its business operations, and it’s not something that will affect anything for fans. It just means you will see Sega’s name on future Atlus games releases, for the most part.

Sega is aware how important having added Atlus under its banner, which includes help with release of its own IPs, “Since Atlus U.S.A.—renowned for the award-winning Shin Megami Tensei, Persona, and Etrian Odyssey franchises—integrated with SEGA of America, the ATLUS expertise has allowed SEGA to localize and publish popular Japanese titles in the west, including the Yakuza series, Project DIVA series, and more,” the company says.
