Shenmue creator Yu Suzaki announced Shenmue III has been pushed back to the second half of 2018 on the game’s Kickstarter.
“By utilizing new technologies, we have been able to discover new possibilities and expressions,” said Suzuki. “In many ways, the game has become bigger and more beautiful than I initially expected.”
“We do, however, need more time to deliver the game to you,” added Suzuki.
Shenmue III was announced during Sony’s E3 press conference in 2015.
