Yakuza 7 Will Launch for PC in November

Yakuza 7 will launch for PC alongside current-gen platforms and the Xbox Series X and Series S in November.

We now know the Yakuza 7 U.S. release date: November 10. Ealier this year, a listing on Steam's backend suggested that the Yakuza 7 PC version would launch sometime this year, though now we know when. 

The original news of the store listing came from Gematsu, who first spotted the listing on SteamDB.

The official PC release was announced earlier this summer, though it was slated to launch on November 13 when first announced. That has now been moved up to November 10 to coincide with the game's release on current-gen platforms, as well as the Xbox Series family of platforms.

Early backend listings often coincide with announcements planned for a few months out, like what we saw with the Resident Evil 3 remake and March's PSN leak for Star Wars: Project Maverick. So it makes sense that the official announcement came a short time later.

Yakuza 7 is a departure for the series. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life wrapped up protagonist Kazuma Kiryu's story, and the next entry centers on down-and-out Ichiban Kasuga. There's more mayhem and mini-games than ever, and in another first for the series, Yakuza 7's combat is turn-based.

You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
