Atlus recently made a creator’s page on Steam. That and a shift to an internal focus on port development work could hint at a push towards future releases in the same vein as the newly released Persona 4 Golden. In June 2019, Sega commented that following the satisfactory results of Catherine Classic, Atlus now had the information they could use to evaluate their own road map for future PC development.
