Last night, parent company Index Holdings announced they were merging Atlus with Index, a mobile phone content provider. While Atlus will no longer be listed on Tokyo’s Stock Exchange, this won’t affect anything done by Atlus USA.
“Don’t worry, guys. This is just some corporate organizational maneuvering and won’t affect anything we do,” comforted Atlus USA site administrator “Inzaghi” in the official forums.
Inzaghi said it would be “highly unlikely” if the management shift affected Atlus Japan and assured “Atlus is not becoming a mobile games company.”
“This is purely a corporate maneuvering so that Index, which is a mobile games company, has easier access to Atlus IPs. That’s all,” Inzaghi closed.
A tip of the hat to suto_vu for the tip.
