Sega has decided that Yakuza 6: The Song of Life will be delayed until April 17th, close to a month later than the original March 20th release date, the company announced on Twitter on Friday.
The delay applies to both North American and Europe, according to an exclusive report from Polygon.
Sega said that pushing back the game “gives us more time to line things up for launch.” They also indicated that a demo will release on February 27th and will allow players to carry their progress forward once the full game is released.
Here is the official announcement:
