In the least surprising news of the day, Shenmue III isn’t coming this year after all.
Deep Silver have today confirmed that the almighty Shenmue III will no longer be arriving this year, instead it’s been pushed to 2019.
In a brief statement on their official blog, the publisher explained the need to ‘polish the quality of the release’, which is about as standard a reason as you can ever expect. The site is currently down at the time of writing, but you can read the full statement here when it’s back up again.
Rossko is the biggest Shenmue fan on the team and he said, out loud, that this is fine and he’s not going to moan about it. The longer the delay, the better the game. Right? RIGHT?
