Atlus Comments on Sega Acquisition: "Our Ongoing Business Is In Very Good Shape"

Posted on Thursday, September 19 @ 11:36:19 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Just yesterday, the news broke that Atlus and its parent company Index Corp. will be purchased by Sega Sammy this November. The response to this acquisition has been mixed, with may concerned as to whether or not Sega is an ideal place for the beloved JRPG developer.

Atlus has since released a statement on its official website to assuage gamers' fears. Here's the letter in full:

Dear customers,  

We are very grateful to have your continued support for our products.  

Today, as announced through investor relations,  we will be continuing our business as part of the Sega Sammy group, starting on November 11th. As you may know, Index Corporation filed for bankruptcy protection on June 27th, and have looked to transfer their business to other companies.  

Above all, we, Atlus corporation, have had our consumer game business supported by an exceptional amount of fans. Regardless of the business itself rising to a much favorable position in recent years, lately, we have caused concern to our customers, to whom we deeply apologize.  

We’ve traditionally maintained strong relations with Sega Corporation, using consumer game business as the main pillar. This time, we expect to maintain the relationship, while achiveing better business synergy. By using Sega’s strong circulation network, we look forward to further expanding our development. In terms of consumer games expertise, this relationship will be mutually benefitial for both sides. It is about the deep acknowledgement of wanting to further raise our brand.  

We feel that our ongoing business is in very good shape, and it brings us great pleasure to be able to report our continuing business, here, today. This has been made possible thanks to your patronage and support. On behalf of all the employees, we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.  

Currently, the employees of the consumer game business, are working zealously on future releases, and are vigorously looking forward to taking on new challenges. In the near future, we will be reporting our ongoing situation through the media, so please expect further developments.  

Director of consumer software department


Naoto Hiraoka

What do you think? Are the best years for Atlus still ahead of them? So long as the next Persona is at least half as good as Persona 4, I'll be a happy camper. Let us know what you think Atlus' future will look like in the comments below.
