Is this the end for Atlus - with Index Media under criminal investigation.

ATLUS's parent company Index Digital Media was the focus of a police raid, as investigators look into fraudulent financial practices. (Atlus, Industry)

Holly hell! That's... bad news. Please finish making Persona 5 before you all go to prison! >_<

No, NO, NO!! Persona 5 MUST come out!

Hard to say if this will affect Atlus or not right now. I think worst case is that someone buys them when Index go under - given their catalogue of titles, I think they'd be an attractive buy for anyone with the money.

Also: Please finish Persona 5 soon - just in case.

Index was nothing but bad news for Atlus imo . That kind of stuff is a blessing in disguise for Atlus .... they need to get away from their clutches

"Are ATLUS in deep shit?"

I hate it when people use plural to talk about a company.

Soooooooo...do people only care about persona games from atlus? While I do enjoy Persona, don't forget that they also have the mainline SMT games, Digital Devil Saga, devil survivor, and devil summoner series.

Holy smoke!

These stupids executives they are a plague, like the COD's CEO, this man won 20 millions in cash the last year! enough money to make a new game and now the Atlus CEO...very sad that the hard work of programers are stolen by CEO gangs.

Eh. Even that article is like "This is kinda common." I'm not worried. At the very most, they have to make up for some losses by not making as many throwaway NIS games. I don't think our SMT or Etrian Odyssey are going anywhere.
