After years of anxiously waiting, we finally have a release date for the much-anticipated Shenmue 3.
The Shenmue 3 release date announcement was made by publisher Deep Silver and it’s still a while away. The game was first announced alongside a Kickstarter in 2015 to help fund the project. The Kickstarter was hugely successful breaking the record for the most money raised for a crowd-funded video game. It was originally planned that the game would release in December 2017, but it wound up being delayed multiple times, much to the dismay of fans. The game is now scheduled for release on the 27th of August 2019. In its statement, Deep Silver explained that the delays helped to polish the game and lifted it to the standard it deserves. Along with the announcement the publisher also released a new trailer for the game.
Many believed that we would never see the third game, yet here we are with Shenmue 3 (hopefully) releasing within a year on the PlayStation 4 and PC. You see, dreams do come true.
