Yakuza 8 Confirmed To Be In Development, Reveal Planned For 2022

Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio has confirmed that Yakuza 8 is in development at the studio and they are planning to reveal it in the next six months to 1 year.

In a major update on their website where they announced the departure of long-time series creators and studio head, Toshihiro Nagoshi and Daisuke Sato, the producer of the series, Masayoshi Yokoyama revealed that they are working on a sequel to Yakuza: Like a Dragon, which was the seventh entry in the popular action series.

“Ryu Ga Gotoku’s predecessors have passed down their beliefs and know-how to each and every staff member. You can witness it in the recently released Lost Judgment and will see it in the upcoming sequel to Yakuza: Like a Dragon which will continue Ichiban Kasuga’s story, ” said Masayoshi Yokoyama.

“This game is currently being developed by producer Sakamoto and directors Horii, Ito and Mitake. I myself along with Takeuchi and Furuta are working on the story.”

“Whether it’s six months or one year from now, I hope to show you a new Ryu Ga Gotoku title by a new Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio that is different but still the same, and something that will spark a feeling of “this is what we are waiting for” within you. I’d like to continue on my life as a video game creator with earnestness.”

Yakuza: Like a Dragon took the series in a new direction with the introduction of turn-based gameplay, a departure from the action-focused brawler that the series was known for in the past. It was successful enough for the company to work on a sequel while simultaneously working on Lost Judgment, which is a new IP set in the Yakuza world that marks the return of action brawler.
