Persona developers Atlus are open to bringing more games to other platforms, following the success of Persona 4 Golden on PC. Atlus said they are in negotiations with other companies to launch new games in the future.

Persona 4 Golden PC port has been a massive success for the developer Atlus and publisher Sega. At the time of writing, the game has over 22,000 reviews with the majority of them being overwhelmingly positive. The overall score currently sits at 96 out of 100 so it is safe to say that players are enjoying this JRPG.

And it seems that Atlus and Sega could bring more games to other platforms, following the success of Persona 4 Golden. The developer have talked about the possibility of porting more games to other platforms in their recent financial call. 

When asked about Pesona 4 Golden incredible sales on Steam and whether they have plans to launch games simultaneously on PC as well, Atlus spokesperson replied (via NintendoSmash ):

"We have remastered "Persona 4 Golden," a previously exclusive title for PlayStation Vita, and released it on Steam this fiscal year. Due to the critical success and its low introductory price, sales were much better than expected. We will continue to promote the release of titles released in the past on Steam and on new consoles. We are also in negotiations with other companies to launch new games in the future, as well as considering selling them on favourable terms for each title. One of those steps is preparing PC versions of our titles from scratch, with simultaneous multi-platform releases in mind."

As you can see, not only that Atlus and Sega plan to simultaneously launch their games on PC, they are also working on PC ports of their games from scratch. Expect a lot more Persona games on PC in the near future. 

Atlus did not say which games are being ported to other platforms but hopefully, we will hear more details about this by the end of the year.
