Index Corporation is moving to sell off its various subsidiaries - which includes Japanese developer and publisher Atlus.
The news comes via Bloomberg, which states that the company is facing stock market delisting on July 28, and will begin taking bids next week.
Total sales of assets, which again includes games publisher Altus, are expected to earn around $149 million.
Atlus is responsible for publishing some rather big titles such as Persona 4, Demon's Souls, Catherine and the upcoming Dragon's Crown. It's currently unknown which companies would be interested in picking the publisher up, although some Japanese based publishers such as Capcom could very well be interested.
