Yakuza: Like a Dragon Heads to PS5 in March 2021, Will be a Free Upgrade for PS4 Owners
Yakuza: Like a Dragon now has official launch dates for all platforms in the west, with most versions of the game releasing in November.
We had already known that Yakuza: Like a Dragon was set to release alongside the upcoming Xbox Series X and S consoles in November, and now, we finally know when the game will arrive in the west on all additional platforms.
Sega confirmed today that Yakuza: Like a Dragon will also be hitting PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on November 10 alongside the Series X launch. This date has actually been pushed forward from the original November 13 date that was announced for all current-gen platforms.
As for those holding out to play on Sony’s next-gen console, well, you’ll have to way a few more months. The PS5 edition of Yakuza: Like a Dragon won’t launch until March 2, 2021. Fortunately, if you can’t hold off until that point and want to grab it on PS4 ahead of time, Sega has confirmed that this version of the game will qualify as a free upgrade for the PS5 once it arrives next year.
