Deep Silver will publish Persona 5 in Europe, the publisher has announced.
After Persona's previous European publisher, NIS America, cut ties with Atlus earlier this year, many were wondering and speculating who the next publisher would be. Deep Silver revealed the details on its partnership with Atlus, confirming that not only will the publisher be bringing Atlus titles to European countries, but also "select SEGA titles".
"We are delighted to have signed this publishing partnership and look forward to using all our pan-European publishing network to maximize the potential of the ATLUS and SEGA games" said Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media/Deep Silver.
"In entering this partnership with Deep Silver, I am truly delighted we will be able to release our titles in the European regions," said Naoto Hiraoka, CEO, Atlus U.S.A., Inc., and senior vice president of publishing, Sega of America, Inc. "Not only does the deal span multiple titles, but Deep Silver has a strong presence in European and PAL retailers. They have a strong passion for being able to deliver physical games to our fans in those territories, which we hold in high regard."
Persona 5 releases on PS4 and PS3 on the 15th of September in Japan and on the 14th of February in North America. Despite this announcement, a release date for Europe has yet to be revealed.
