PROJECT Re FANTASY Still Seems to Be Looking for a Programmer

Project Re Fantasy Job

A PROJECT Re FANTASY job listing is still showing on the official website, and it looks like the team is still looking for programmers skilled in “coding software that operates on portable game consoles.” This also includes coding software that operates on high-end consoles for home use. However, it is important to note that, as people on Resetera caught, the page seems like it was only updated back in 2017. However, with that being the case, it is interesting to see the listing still being up, especially in relation to the on-going development of the project.  [Thanks, ResetEra!]

Additionally, despite the game being announced in 2018, it looks like there still is only the PlayStation 4 version mentioned on the website itself. In December 2019, Atlus released a statement assuring fans that PROJECT Re FANTASY is still in development. News about this title has been relative quiet, with updates in 2019 being fairly scarce.

Katsura Hashino did share his thoughts on what his hopes and aspirations were for PROJECT Re FANTASY in 2020. Hashino mentioned in an interview that its development reminded him of working on Persona 3. He also said he hoped to make an official announcement regarding the game. In an interview from September of 2018, Hashino said that the story setting was mostly complete, though the developers were still working on fleshing out some minor details. With that being said and with the most recent job listing, maybe we’ll see an update regarding the game sometime soon.

PROJECT Re FANTASY was announced in 2018 and is currently in development for the PlayStation 4 and potentially unknown platforms.
