Sega has announced that Yakuza developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio is hosting its RGG Summit stream on September 14, which will potentially include new details on the upcoming Yakuza 8.
Announced in a tweet (below), the stream will take place at 3am Pacific / 6am Eastern / 11am UK / 8pm AEST, and though RGG Studio hasn’t confirmed what games will be featured, it has been teasing a full reveal of Yakuza 8 for some time.

It first confirmed it was working on a new game back in November last year, revealing it would be a direct sequel to 2020’s Like a Dragon, but more recently shared a handful of images from Yakuza 8 in a behind-the-scenes video at the studio.
RGG Studio is working on other games as well, however, also confirming in November that it was continuing development on the Judgement series as well as developing a brand new game that is yet to be revealed.
The RGG Summit stream could therefore feature any of these projects, or something new entirely, but given that Ryu Ga Gotoku is not just the developer’s name but Yakuza’s Japanese name, it’s certainly the franchise most synonymous with the studio.
