Shenmue 3 Release Date Delayed to 2019 in Shocking Development

Shenmue

"Deep Silver today announced that its upcoming release Shenmue III has been moved and will now release in 2019", reads the publisher's statement. Hopefully this will be the last delay (in a long line of delays) for the anticipated title, but we strongly recommend that you don't hold your breath though.

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.

Northern Ireland Unemployment Rate Falls To Lowest Ever Level
The unemployment rate in Northern Ireland has fallen to its lowest ever level, according to a recent Labour Force Survey . Overall, the results also show an improvement over the quarter in employment and inactivity rates.

Deep Silver's announcement of this delay doesn't give us much to go on, except that the delay seems to be necessary in order to further polish the game, and have it meet the unwieldy expectations of Shenmue evangelists. 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 teaser trailer released back in 2017 was criticized for the bizarrely blank facial expressions of its characters.

Looks like we won't be able to play Shenmue III in 2019, perhaps not surprisingly. They were then reworked later that year, but still displayed a stiffness we don't expect to see from something on current-generation systems. Fans have been waiting for well over a decade for this game to finally release, and these delays being thrown on top of that aren't making anything easier.
