Many months ago, Microsoft announced that many Yakuza games were coming to Xbox Game Pass on Xbox One and PC. Right now, only Yakuza 0 and Yakuza Kiwami are available. However, Yakuza Kiwami 2 is joining the service on July 30. Yesterday, the official Xbox Game Pass Twitter account just said "Yakuza Kiwami 2." The account is known for its cheeky humor so this was a tease of its arrival on the service.
July 30 is a Thursday so it's a somewhat unorthodox release date, but we'll take it! Yakuza Kiwami 2 is the best in the series in my opinion.
