Players who own Persona 5 Royal on PS4 will need to purchase the native PS5 version separately at full price as Atlus has confirmed that it will not be possible to upgrade to the next-gen version.
A list of FAQs posted on the official Persona website has revealed some bad news for owners of Persona 5 Royal on PlayStation 4. Apparently, Atlus itself has confirmed that the most complete version of the fifth numbered installment of the popular JRPG saga will not support an upgrade from PS4 to PS5 . In other words, those users who own the version of the video game on Sony’s previous generation console will not be able to update it to the native version of PS5 for free or paying an extra as in the case of God of War: Ragnarok , so They will have to go through the box again.
It should be noted that the PS4 version of Persona 5 Royal is playable on PS5 thanks to backward compatibility , although as we have highlighted, players who have this version in their possession will not be able to benefit from the benefits that the native version will add for the new console generation that will go on sale next October 21 . As might be expected, this decision has been highly criticized by all those users who own a copy of the title on PS4 because they consider that paying again for the full game instead of using channels such as the free or paid update is It’s about abuse.
