Shenmue 3 Gets Delayed to 2019

At the 2015 Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, Sony invited Shenmue creator and former Sega developer Yu Suzuki on stage to announce that he was making Shenmue III as a crowdfunding project on Kickstarter.

The development cycle for Shenmue 3 has been slow going, with the game originally set to launch at the end 2017. No other monthly window was given, just a general "next year sometime".

The next - and very much long-awaited - instalment of the cult gaming franchise will finally arrive next year, publishers Deep Silver have confirmed.

"Deep Silver today announce that their upcoming release Shenmue III has been moved and will now release in 2019". To "polish the quality of the game even further, to the high standards it deserves and release the product in the best possible timeframe". It was the animations that had many questioning the quality of the game.

A crowdfunding campaign for the long-awaitedShenmue III was announced almost three years ago at E3 2015, and since then, we've seen numerous developer updates and release date shifts. More than $6 million was raised on the platform, far above the $2 million goal, in addition to the funding provided by Deep Silver. A delay then pushed it back to the second half of 2018, and now another one is pushing the game's release back to 2019.
