Yakuza 6 Delayed To April 17th; Dev Releases Statement Explaining Why and Promises Demo in February

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life was scheduled for March 20th release date, but unfortunately it had to be delayed.

Sega and the game’s official Twitter account shared the game’s delay news and provided a statement, explaining the reasons behind the delay, confirming the demo’s release date and teased “many new plans” are getting revealed within the coming weeks. Here is the official statement:

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life’s release is being moved back a month to April 17th. This was a tough business decision we didn’t make lightly. But with bad news, we also have some good news. This gives us more time to line things up for launch, and on February 27th, the demo for Yakuza 6: The Song of Life will be available and will allow players to bring their save into the game on release.

This will be the first time everyone will have a chance to play the game (a moment we have long been anticipating!) and we can’t wait to hear what you think about it.

We have many new plans to reveal over the coming weeks to give you all more insight into the series, so stay tuned!

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life will now launch on April 17th exclusively for PS4. A few months ago, the game received a Mature rating from the ESRB.
