So Atlus (the developers of the Persona series) decided to go straight to a legal proceeding against the makers of the emulator for copyright infringement, also asking for the closing of the Patreon page (a platform in which you can receive private funding) of RPCS3.
In the RPCS3 project, there were many references to Persona 5, including the ability to run it on PCs though not yet perfect, but it was promised that the upcoming updates will allow PC players to play the title in a fluid way.
Patreon refused to close the emulator project on its site, but after the complaint, the creators of RPCS3 have eliminated any reference to the disputed JRPG title, even from their official website.
Atlus always had a special sense of protection for its titles; in fact, shortly after the release of Persona 5, it warned several streamers that if they went too far with their gameplay video, they would have received several complaints and the risk of eliminating of their gameplay videos in question.
In a post on its official website, where they revealed the reasons of this DMCA against the PS3 emulator, Atlus has also revealed that it is listening to the requests of fans who want to see Persona 5 on PC.
"We understand that many Persona fans would love to see a PC version. And while we don’t have anything to announce today, we are listening!"
