We had a report from last night that Sega has acquired Index Holdings, and subsequently Atlus, but now we have the actual confirmation from Sega.
Sega Sammy has confirmed the news via a press release, which you can see here.
In acquiring Index Holdings and Atlus, Sega has opened a new branch called “Sega Dream Corporation”, which will oversee all of Index and Atlus’ operations.
Coming from this, Sega now owns all of Index’s Corps intellectual properties, most notably the Shin Megami Tensei, Persona, and the Etrian Odyssey series.
The transfer is scheduled to be completed on November 1st of this year.
