Now Playing: Who Is Persona 5’s Best Confidant?

It's unclear why Persona 5 is being removed from the PS Plus Collection, but this is the first time Sony has confirmed a game's withdrawal from the service.

The Japanese role-playing game from Atlus first joined the PS Plus Collection in November 2020--when the service was first launched--alongside other AAA titles such as God Of War, Bloodborne, Final Fantasy 15, The Last Of Us Remastered, Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted 4: A Theif's End, and more.

Yesterday, Sony revealed its brand-new PlayStation Plus subscription service, which will launch in June with three tiers. The standard PS Plus subscription will be rebranded to PlayStation Plus Essential and will cost $60 per year, while PlayStation Plus Extra will cost $15 per month or $100 per year and will feature 400 PS4 and PS5 games. The most expensive tier is called PlayStation Plus Premium--which will cost $18 per month or $120 per year--and will include "up to 340 additional games" versus the Extra tier.
