Instead of fixing that in Royal they are making a new Confidant/potential party member.

Watch them still do nothing about Haru.

Only characters that matter will still be Joker, Makoto, Mr. Sojiro Sakura, Futaba, Sae, Morgana, and Akechi.

Honestly, it was probably easier to just write in a new character probably tied to a new dungeon or scenario like Marie from Golden than changing Hifumi around to make her a party member. That ship has sailed. Maybe Hifumi Would have worked as a new party member if we got like...a sequel or something, but I doubt that's what this is. Likely just an expanded version of the game following the Atlus trope of inserting a new girl tied to new content, a la Marie, Miyako and Alex.

Haru needs more screen time urgently though. And at least that much should be easy to fix.

From what I've been hearing, that narrative is incorrect.

The story that I was told was Atlus had ideas for 2 "logical" characters and eventually ended up combining them to make Makoto's character. The leftovers became Hifumi's character.

Not even that. The leftover design became Hifumi's design. The developers have described Hifumi as "a completely different character" from the one the design was originally meant for.

Hifumi would have been a better character than Haru.

Guess that explains why Makoto dominated screen time even before she joined and remained that way. Not to mention she forms an older sister role for Futaba and Sae, her sister, is very important to the story too. Sojiro counts too via Futaba whom Makoto is very close with.

Then there is Akechi whom Makoto already knew.
