On May 23, 2023, it was discovered that Atlus had potentially registered a Persona 5 related domain name called “P5T.JP.” This domain name has been updated today, on June 2, 2023.
The update to the P5T website domain is similar to updates for previous Persona domains shortly before their related games were announced: a move to the company’s owned nameservers instead of the Onamae (Japanese domain registrar) nameservers for the generic landing page.
The website currently returns an ‘HTTP 404 Not Found’ status, with no requested resource to be found as of yet.
Possible Announcement Date
Whenever these name server changes for Atlus related domains have occurred previously, the game reveals have taken place within two weeks of the update.
Summer Game Fest 2023 will take place next week on June 8, and there will be an Xbox Games Showcase on June 11th. These are two possible venues for an imminent announcement.
