Future PlayStation 5 users need not be disheartened by the delay in the release of Yakuza: Like a Dragon

Although it will mean a long wait for the PS5 users, it is not all bad news. For Xbox Series X/S and PS5 users, the game will have a free upgrade option. This means that you can buy the Xbox One/PS4 version of the game and then have it upgraded for the next-gen consoles for free.

As for the Xbox users, smart delivery will be taking care of this. It will enable users to take the Xbox One version of the title to the Xbox Series S, or the Series X version. As for PlayStation users, it will be even simpler. It will simply replace the digital copies of the PS4 version of the game with a free digital copy of the PS5 version.
