SEGA's Shuji Utsumi said that the publisher want to "globally expand" ATLUS games by releasing them simultaneously worldwide and possibly on more platforms.

SEGA Vice President Shuji Utsumi has recently talked to Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu Interview about SEGA published games and what the future holds for the company. Utsumi revealed that their latest Yakuza game, Yakuza: Like A Dragon, has been the most successful instalment in the popular JRPG series.

Additionally, Utsumi also revealed plans to expand Atlus franchises to more players. To do so, they want to publish Atlus' games simultaneously worldwide and more importantly, on multiple platforms, suggesting that future Persona games could launch on PC, PlayStation, Switch and Xbox on the same day.

The majority of recent Persona games released on the PlayStation platform only but as you may know, PC and Switch players sometimes get some ports a year or less after the launch on the PlayStation platform. Persona 5: Strikers, the latest game in the series launched simultaneously on PS4, Switch and PC platforms which may suggest that a change is coming. Hopefully, Sega and Atlus will also add Xbox to the mix. 

Hopefully, the Persona series will soon start releasing simultaneously on all platforms since such a release (worldwide and on all major platforms) is certainly what all players, regardless of preferred platform, would certainly appreciate.
