With the lack of the "Only On" on the game's cover, some people thought it was possible the game was arriving to other platforms, especially with the never-stopping request for it. However, today Atlus West updated their Twitter biography to add the "exclusively" part.





Aditionally, PlayStation and Atlus YouTube accounts have now added the "exclusively" part where other trailers missed it:


Personally, I'd like this game to come out on PC and I'm still hoping for it, but this makes it less likely. After Sony's comments on Persona it's not surprising they tried to reach an exclusivity deal I guess.

I mean... It just says is coming to PS4 exclusively on 3/31. Doesn't say anything about later dates. It's still open for interpretation, but you're probably right.

I don't think that means what you think it means in this context. They're just referring to this specific release and date.

Doesn't mean other platforms are a given, but this isn't the evidence that it will never ever come anywhere else

I have a PS4 so no problem but it's Atlus being Atlus. And they still won't port P4G to the PS4!

absurd. What they wouldn't say that? claiming about not being exclusive leads to less sells. So they'll spread now that's exclusive, and in a while they're drop a switch version with a "ooopsiee, now is not exclusive! buy it again if you want! And well. I'll buy it for a third time.

I mean ... I’ve got it queued up and ready to go for next Tuesday, but I won’t sit here and deny that they would sell an avalanche of copies on PC and Switch.

What's the point of keeping 3rd-party game an exclusive? I don't think PlaStation will try to keep it as an exclusive as nowadays a lot of their own 1st-party games are coming to PC. Sooner or later this game will come to other platforms.

"on march 31"

So you are telling me there is a chance?
Well yes, that is true

for March 31st
It can be read that is coming exclusively on current date for PS4 and later it can release on other platforms
I mean... It just says is coming to PS4 exclusively on 3/31. Doesn't say anything about later dates. It's still open for interpretation, but you're probably right.
that is what I read too lol
Exclusive on the 31st of March. After that date, anything goes.
Yes because later they'll release "Persona 5witch"

Atlus didn't even ported Persona 4 Golden to PS4

Expected, but it's still weird that Nintendo actively sought out Joker for Smash if Persona 5 won't ever show up on Switch instead of some spinoffs.

Knowing Atlus' stubborness, I'm still keeping my PS4 preorder, but I'll be happy/mad if they end up porting it later on lol.

Legit annoys me to see folks port beg for this on the Switch.

Like you could be using your time productively and beg for updated versions of Persona 1 + 2, or a definitive version of 3, or a straight up port of Golden.

Or wondering where the hell SMT5 is

For what it's worth I don't think P5R will be ported, but this basically means nothing.
