Microsoft may be in talks to bring Persona 5 or Persona 5 Strikers to the Xbox Game Pass library. This was hinted at by an insider under the nickname Shpeshal Ed.
Previously, the Persona series was exclusive to PlayStation consoles, but in recent years, the franchise’s titles have begun to appear on other platforms. In the summer of 2020, Persona 4 Golden was released on Steam, and six months later, Persona 5 Strikers was released on PC.
Additionally, SEGA has already ported the entire Yakuza series to PC and Xbox. Earlier, Shpeshal Ed hinted that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice could also appear in one of the gaming services, for example, in the PlayStation Plus or in the Xbox Game Pass.
Prior to that, he was the first to announce the addition of a Final Fantasy VII Remake to PS Plus. The rumors do not make it clear whether it is the new Royal version or the standard version of Persona 5.
Persona 5 was released for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in 2016 and was a milestone in the JRPG genre at the time. The Persona 5 Royal released in 2020 and the latest spin-off from the Musou universe has once again underlined how great the adventures around phantom thieves are.
As we have already said, at the moment there is no official confirmation from Microsoft that this will happen and it could just be a rumor. It would certainly be great news for Xbox users if Persona 5 came to their consoles. We can only wait to see if someone from Microsoft or Atlus will comment on it.
