The latest issue of famitsu has an interview with studio head Masayoshi Yokoyama about what’s next for the studio now that Nagoshi-san has left. He briefly mentions that the next released work from his team which has grown to over 300 people now will be releasing Ryu Ga Gotoku 8 and is also working on a new unnannounced IP that is different to both Judgment and Yakuza.

No more details were given but seeing as the Judgment series seems to be at an end it’s likely that this new series will be whatever ends up replacing the traditional Action Brawler style of Yakuza game they’re known for.
