Sad news for Shenmue fans as Deep Silver have announced that the game has been delayed until 2019. The game was previously planned for release in the second half of 2018.
In an update on Kickstarter, Yu Suzuki said:
“To all of our backers, we are very sorry for the delay. After much discussion with our partners, Deep Silver, we have concluded that extending the release will allow us to deliver Shenmue III at its best. We promise to use this time to improve the quality of Shenmue III.”
