A later in-game date cut off point has been stated.
Persona 5 publisher Atlus has apologised for the overly strict streaming restrictions, and has loosened the rules a bit.
Earlier this month, Atlus threatened to take action against those who streamed too much of the game, i.e. past the in-game date of 7th July. This rule was in place to prevent spoilers spilling out.
"To our surprise, we then saw numerous reactive news articles go up, opinion videos post, and received many emails asking us to please change our Persona 5 streaming / video policy"
"We recognise that our fans are the reason why the game is the major worldwide success it is, and we continue to want them to be able to enjoy the game without fear of being spoiled. However we also hear your issues with the guidelines and have decided to revise them".
"Because we want to give players the most access to the game while respecting the original goal, we're now asking players to refrain from streaming or posting video past the end of the in-game date of 19/11 - when the main story gears up for the final act"
"We also want to apologise to those of you who saw the previous guidelines blog post as threatening. We want to be transparent about what we do, and the reason we released the guidelines was to give streamers the right information up front. It was never our intention to threaten people with copyright strikes, but we clearly chose the wrong tone for how to communicate this".
Persona 5 still blocks the use of the PS4's share button, so bear that in mind.
