Persona 4: Golden Breaks Steam Player Count and Sales Record

PC version of Persona 4: Golden breaks record as most played JRPG of all-time and high sales on Steam.

Last week, PC version of acclaimed role-playing game Persona 4: Golden was announced and released during PC Gaming Show 2020 on June 13, 2020, a few days after developer Atlus created a brand-new creator page on Steam.

Even though P4: Golden came out nearly a decade ago, Persona fans were very excited to have a port for the JRPG classic on Windows PC, which broke record for number of player count and sales, according to reports from Steam Charts.

Spotted by a Resetera user, P4G has amassed a total of 29,984 concurrent players only a day after its Steam debut on June 14, breaking record of Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition as most concurrently played non-MMO JRPG of all-time.

Persona 4: Golden is currently listed as a top-seller game on Steam, globally sitting at number 3 position. Almost 30% of its overall player base has already cleared up their first in-game dungeon, showing great interest at the game.

Atlus communications manager, Ari Advincula has stated in an interview from earlier this year that a Nintendo Switch version of Persona 5 is possible only if players keep voicing their demands to Atlus and show full support.

Many fans then took Twitter to trend new hashtag #BreakFreePersona, pleading to Atlus for releasing ports of Persona games to Switch console and thus, breaking Sony's long-running authority over a widely beloved JRPG franchise.

Majority of Persona series fans have always showed a positive response towards its old and new ports. Now that P4: Golden has arrived on Steam; its success can inspire Atlus to bring more ports other than Persona games to PC.

When a leaked listing on SteamDB has revealed news of Persona 4: Golden getting a PC release earlier, there was another rumor for Persona 3 Portable coming to Steam as well, which has yet to be officially confirmed by developer Atlus.
