Takeda is quoted as saying:

I chose the word “challenge” as the keyword for 2022, with the hope that we will be able to release a game that could potentially become a pillar for Atlus. The staff are currently hard at work to develop this game so that it will be interesting and enjoyable to everyone.

Additionally, Hashino revealed new details regarding the development of Project Re Fantasy. He stated that while the development on Project Re Fantasy has taken some “unexpected twists and turns,” the development of the title has reached its peak. For now, the team is working hard on development of the game.

In September 2021, Atlus held online job interviews. Candidates would be sorted into one of three production teams, with one team assigned to work on Project Re Fantasy. Another production team was assigned work on the Persona franchise. However, a new Persona title has yet to be announced.
