Yakuza Dev Team Already Working On New Project

Yakuza Dev Team

Sega has been rapidly cranking out new games for the Yakuza series, cementing the franchise as one of the biggest under Sega’s umbrella. Yakuza 6 was recently released for PlayStation 4 users outside of Japan for the first time, and many are basking in its crime stories and bizarre elements. The series surely does not show signs of slowing down any time soon, with Yakuza Kiwami 2 and Shin Yakuza in the works. Now, it seems that the dev team is getting right back into action, as it has been confirmed that they are creating a new IP.

As reported on DualShockers, Sega Sammy Holdings, Inc. CEO Haruki Satomi was recently interviewed by Japanese magazine Weekly Famitsu. Satomi mentions during the interview that even this soon after the worldwide release of Yakuza 6, the dev team is already hard at work on a new project that will serve as the launch for a brand new IP. In the interview, Satomi expresses the company’s intention to bring new IPs to all of the big gaming platforms, including console, PC, mobile and arcade games. As such, he brings up that the studio is working on a new project, which seems to imply that the new IP could come to mobile and arcade platforms.

Satomi does not give any additional information about the new IP, so it is anyone’s guess as to what the subject matter would be for the game. However, given the frequency of Yakuza title releases in the past few years, it is very possible that the game could be released within a year or two. Still, it will be interesting to see the dev team take on a new universe to have fun with, perhaps even one that has peeing minigames?
