Looks like the source code on the Lost Judgement website listing the game for PC was just an error.
That’s if SEGA’s comment regarding a PC version of Lost Judgment is anything to go by.
Speaking in an email with PC Gamer, a SEGA spokesperson confirmed that the recently announced game is not coming to PC anytime soon.
“The game is being announced for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One,” said the representative. “SEGA has no plans to bring Lost Judgment to PC at this time.”
What got everyone excited over the possibility of a PC release was the SEGA Japan website having the game listed for Windows 10 and Steam as well as consoles. It also had the Steam logo listed in the source code as noted by As Yakuza fan site Tojo Dojo.
Now, just because it is not releasing day and date with consoles doesn’t mean it won’t eventually head to PC. While we are still waiting on the first Judgment to arrive on Steam or any other PC storefront, it’s quite possible far-off plans are in the works to bring the games to the platform.
It has taken SEGA and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio a while to release the Yakuza series on PC. But it eventually happened.
So, the comment “not at this time,” gives us a little bit of hope.
The game will be released on September 24 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
