We ran a story about the updated Persona 5 website made to countdown to the day of May 5. Well, it just so happens that hackers have stepped ahead of the Atlus team and announced the game for them.
A news post on an official Japanese Persona Channel, lists Persona 5 to be released on July 8 for PlayStation 4 and PC. This has turned out to be false. Additionally, the hackers left a message for Atlus.
It was fake. Time to go talk to HQ about web security!

[Author’s Edit] We originally ran this story off a tip, but it seems that said the countdown site was not real. The countdown is real, however, they meant that this release date on the Website was false. Sorry for the confusion.
Persona 5 is coming to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
