Lost Judgment will be the second game in the spin-off series, which is considered by many as the spiritual successor of the first 6 Yakuza games. The game may also be the last AAA project of Toshihiro Nagoshi at SEGA, since according to a report by Bloomberg, the director, producer, designer, and creator of the Yakuza franchise may be leaving the company to pursue new opportunities with the Chinese company NetEase Inc.
Lost Judgment is set to be released on September 24, 2021, for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. You can also play through the first game in the acclaimed series, Judgment, right now on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and on Google Stadia.
