Shenmue 3 Release Window Pushed Back To 2019

Unsurprisingly, Shenmue 3 has been delayed once again, this time from an unspecified time this year to an unspecified time in 2019.

Shenmue 3 was officially announced during Sony's E3 2015 presentation, with the game being developed using funds from a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign. It was originally supposed to come out in December 2017. After missing that date, the open-world forklift-driving simulator is getting another delay from sometime this year to sometime in 2019. It appeared that the game would finally make it into the wild in 2018, but publisher Deep Silver has chose to push it into next year.

"The extra time will be used to polish the quality of the game even further, to the high standards it deserves and release the product in the best possible timeframe", Deep Silver explained.

Suzuki and Sega released the first Shenmue for the Dreamcast console in 1999. Highly publicized Kickstarter games run the risk of letting down backers. It was the animations that had many questioning the quality of the game. 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 few months back the publisher seemed adamant that the game would make it out in time for 2018; but footage from the game suggested otherwise. Still, as long as they can ensure that the game will be as good as it possibly can be, I guess we can all just suck it up for now.
