The playable demo for Yakuza 6: The Song of Life has been pulled from the PlayStation Store by Sega overnight.
According to the publishing giant, the demo was removed as some players were able to access more content than intended in the teaser. Well, actually, that’s an understatement; some managed to get their mitts on the full game, which is probably not a surprise considering the demo weighed in at 36.53GB.
Sega issued a statement on Twitter confirming that it’s looking into the issue, although there’s no word on when (and indeed if) the demo will be making a return to the PS Store any time soon.
‘We apologize, but have had to remove the Yakuza 6: The Song of Life demo from the PlayStation Store,’ said the publisher. ‘We are as upset as you are, and had hoped to have this demo available for everyone today. We discovered that some were able to use the demo to unlock the full game. We’re looking into the nature of the issue. Thank you for your patience.’
Yakuza 6 is pencilled in for release exclusively for PS4 in the US and UK on April 17, having been delayed from its original launch date of March 20.
