There is a small chance that there might be a surprise Yakuza game on the way. According to a rumour on 4chan that came up today.
The rumour is about low-quality screenshots of a game
It seems that a leaker has taken to 4chan to post some leaked images of what they claim to be a New Yakuza Game. Posting some rather low-texture and low-resolution screenshots to match. Could this be a surprise new title in the beloved series that will release in 2021? If the rumour is true, then there can be a surprise release upcoming but the chances are small.
Yakuza gains worldwide fame thanks to the title releasing worldwide. It became very popular. When it first came out, it was a PlayStation exclusive. But now, we will be able to see the upcoming titles on multiple platforms. With the game releasing on other consoles and PC, it becomes more popular than ever. It is no surprise that some rumour comes up occasionally.
According to the 4chan user who posted the images to the site, the new game is described to be: “Seems to be based off the story from Yakuza Online (the shit Japan-only gacha game) Features playable Ryuji Goda and locations from Yakuza 5 and 6“. You can find the screenshots of the rumour just below:
Some have argued that the game looks very rough around the edges and it could also be something that the user has made via another game engine or a similar endeavour, but it would be hard to argue since 4chan does also have a track record with leaking games in this manner. While we can’t really say if this will indeed a Yakuza spin-off title like Judgement, only time will tell what the title could be based on future announcements from Sega and the developers of the game.
