Japanese software company could be on the brink of going out of business, with reports of Index, the parent company filing for bankruptcy.
According to a report on Kotaku the company is entering "civil rehabilitation proceedings in order to cut off the corporate bloodletting before it becomes fatal." Apparently Atlus' Parent Company Is Under Investigation at the moment, which probably doesn't help matters.
Atlus is famous for quite a few JRPG's such as the Persona series. It has also published some pretty big titles over the world, such as Demon's Souls and Catherine.
