It has yet to be confirmed, though I now personally believe that she will not be.

We've already seen screenshots of the ski trip in January. If Mary ever joined the party, it would be fair to assume that she'd be on the trip with the rest of the team.

It's not entirely impossible that maybe she'll be a temporary party member during her own sidequest (we know she's conducting her own investigation in the game) but I don't think she'll be a permanent party member.

I could be wrong, because like I said, hasn't been confirmed.

But to me that's where the logic points.

Maybe she'll be a bonus boss?

Also, I'm sure we all know the plot and what happens, so it's cool to post spoilers here, right?

I don't care what you say, Generation II sucks.
That's just my opinion, no matter how true it may be.

You can post whatever you want, but you should still put spoiler tags. Gotta remember a handful of people will probably be playing P4 for the first time with this game.

Oh well okay.

*spoilers*

She could possibly be the fourth "Player" in Izanami's "game".

I'm guessing she might be a protagonist in some new Atlus game. Or a member of the Velvet Room in P5.

Well she's in the new opening, according to Siliconera, and she's got a tarot card beside her head. From the angle of the card, it's obviously rotating. What this means though, I don't know. Her arcana is obviously on the other side, but since we can reasonably deduce she's the Aeon social link, it doesn't mean much unless her "actual" arcana is different (like Aegis in Fes and P3P and Aki and Shinji in MShe's story). We'll have to wait until the release the full opening animation (which is done by Madhouse! I love that studio!)

I'd say this makes her officially something more than standard social link status (unless they plan to run through all of them in the opening), but whether or not she's a party member is still undetermined. Like Strain said, she hasn't been shown in any full party screens, but on the other hand (to play devil's advocate), it's not like companies haven't edited pre-release material to avoid big reveals before (the big one off the top of my head being MGS2 and Raiden), and Atlus/Index have been going pretty far out of their way to avoid giving us any real information on her.

I don't think Atlus would go so far as to completely do what MGS2 did since they're not nearly as big.
