# Anticipation Builds as Persona 5 Tactica’s Steam Launch Experiences an Unexpected Twist
## An Accidental Early Release
In a rare turn of events, fans of the much-loved Persona series had a fleeting glimpse of excitement as the upcoming game “Persona 5 Tactica” mistakenly became available on Steam ahead of its official launch. It appears that an oversight led to this early release, causing a surge of activity on social media as some eagle-eyed players spotted the blunder.
Notably, one user, [@ScrambledFaz](https://twitter.com/ScrambledFaz), took to Twitter to broadcast the unexpected find to the gaming community, citing that the game was unintentionally released and even provided visual proof of playing the game.

Despite the mishap, the window of opportunity was remarkably brief—with the game reportedly being available for no more than 20 minutes. Yet, the swift actions of Atlus and SEGA to correct the mistake couldn’t outpace the quickest of fans. Data from SteamDB reflected that precisely three fortunate players managed to access “Persona 5 Tactica” before the door was hastily shut.
## Upcoming Launch of Persona 5 Tactica
Luckily for fans, the countdown to the legitimate release is not long. “Persona 5 Tactica” is set to officially hit the market on November 17, spreading its availability across an array of platforms, including PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Nintendo Switch. For those subscribers of Xbox Game Pass, the title will be ready to enjoy from day one at no extra cost.
Ahead of its debut, Atlus stepped into the spotlight last month to dish out fresh details about “Persona 5 Tactica”. Players can look forward to engaging features such as New Game+ mode, a Replay feature, and additional side missions sure to extend the gameplay experience.
## The Chronological Release of Persona Games
The excitement surrounding “Persona 5 Tactica” serves as just a slice of the anticipation for the series’ fans. Following this strategy game with its distinct chibi-style characters, there’s a highly anticipated remake on the horizon—”Persona 3 Reload”. However, this particular gem is slated for launch a little further down the line on February 2, 2024, promising availability on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, and also through Xbox Game Pass.
