Shenmue 3’s publisher is refusing refunds for complaints about its Epic exclusivity

Of course, the game was successfully crowdfunded, and backers have been waiting for the game patiently. Creator Yu Suzuki appeared on stage at the PC Gaming Show briefly to thank fans and introduce the new trailer, but didn't address this new development. They've taken to the Kickstarter page to voice their displeasure.

It was also noted that those ordering a physical PC edition will now receive a code for the Epic Games Store, as opposed to the originally advertised Steam code. This exclusivity was apparently chosen as Epic have been an important partner in the development of Shenmue III in helping with supporting development via the Unreal Engine. Because it has no multiplayer, there's no need for friends lists or leaderboards or any of the things that give Steam as a platform the edge.

Auto Chess, Chivalry 2, Shenmue 3, Untitled Goose Game, and Zombie Army 4: Dead War will all be Epic Games Store exclusives on PC. I'd like to think I inspired this game by once making one of them eat a giant glob of mayonnaise for my entertainment, but frankly the goose isn't that much of a dick. The comments section on that Kickstarter update is filled with people demanding a refund, with many pointing out that they specifically selected the once-promised Steam version when they backed the game. But most importantly, in looking for the most enjoyable experience on PC, it was decided together with Deep Silver after much discussion that the Epic Games Store would be the best distribution platform option.
