A new Bloomberg report out of Japan states that Index Corporation, parent company of Atlus, is close to finding a buyer. Inside sources have indicated that Sega Sammy Holdings is one of the top interested companies. The report also says that candidates in the sale will be narrowed by next week, and if all goes well, the final sale may take place by the end of the month.
Atlus developer Katsura Hashino recently provided fans with an apology about his company’s state of affairs, as well as a reassurance that the current situation will not slow the development of new titles. MNN will continue to track this story as it unfolds.
