Looks like Altus will release Persona 3 and Persona 4 on PC
On June 13, the PC Gaming Show will be held, which is dedicated to projects for the great and mighty. Already, there is information that it is highly likely to see the announcement of Persona 3 and Persona 4 on the PC. It looks like the port of Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden will delight us - these are extended versions of the original games.
The information came from the twitter user Sabi Wabii, who in the past merged interesting announcements from E3. The Persona post has now been deleted. However, besides his words, we have other confirmations. For example, Persona 4 Golden launched a SteamDB page, as well as a game support page on the Denuvo system. In addition, the information is confirmed by Gematsu, an insider at Wario64, and game analyst Daniel Ahmad says that the game will be released on the same day as the announcement.
This is clearly good news and we may see other parts of the Persona series in the future, but for now it's too early to hope, as there is no information about the same Persona 5.
Dead Space Writer Working On New Game
[Updated] Of all the games shown at the presentation, it is not yet clear which one was created by Johnston's script, but this is definitely not a restart of Dead Space.
[Original News] The first Dead Space was written by Anthony Johnston. He says that he has been working on a new game for two years now, which will tell about a character in a not very pleasant period of his life. We will learn more about this game at the PS5 Games presentation.
Here's a little detail. During the technical presentation of the PS5 stuffing, the first Dead Space flashed on slides by Mark Cerny, which he cited as an example of a game with excellent sound work, in the context of the PS5 having a new sound chip. Many people assume that this is not just a coincidence and that we are not waiting for a new game by Johnston, but a restart of Dead Space.
Naughty Dog's next project could be The Last of Us 3 and a new game
GQ has posted a great deal about the making of The Last of Us Part 2, based on a conversation with game director and writer Neil Drukmenn. He said that he does not exclude the possibility of a third part in the series. The fact is that already now the studio is thinking where to go next and is discussing both the possibility of creating a third part of the series and the appearance of the game on a new IP. It all depends on what the studio considers more significant.
At one time, many believed that the first game did not need a sequel, since it was quite original. However, as we can see, it appeared, so it will not be surprising if we also see the triquel.
Druckmann also shared that he is very much looking forward to the release of The Last of Us series from HBO, where he himself acted as a writer and executive producer together with Craig Meisen. According to him, the format allows them to focus solely on the drama.
