This is due to Strikers being the sequel to the original Persona 5 rather than Royal.

Meaning that Akechi died and won't be making an appearance.

In comparison, the Royal ending left hints that he may have survived.

Anything that happened in Persona 5 Royal that didn't in the original is pretty much non-existent in Strikers.

So, it sucks but yes Akechi won't be in the latest Persona title.

Though there's always potential he could be added in a DLC like Kasumi might do too.
