Yakuza 8 will pick up several years after the events of Yakuza: Like A Dragon, and developer Ryu Ga Gotoku is also working on a new game outside the Yakuza and Judgment universe. 

Studio director Masayoshi Yokoyama discussed Ryu Ga Gotoku’s plans in a recent interview with Famitsu (translated by Gematsu), just over a month after the confirmation of a direct Yakuza: Like a Dragon sequel as well as the departure of studio heads Toshihiro Nagoshi and Daisuke Sato.
