Yakuza: Like a Dragon will launch for PlayStation 5 in the west in addition to its previously announced Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions, Sega announced.
The PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam, Humble Store, and Microsoft Store) versions will launch in November. As previously announced, the Xbox Series X version will launch on day one of the console’s release date. The PlayStation 5 version will release at a later date.
The Xbox versions will support “Smart Delivery,” ensuring consumers will only need to purchase the game once to play it on either Xbox One or Xbox Series X when both the console and that version of the game are available.
A PlayStation 5 upgrade path is also being planned and will be announced at a later date.

Here is an overview of each edition:
