If you are one of the many fans eagerly waiting to play Shenmue III, you may have to wait just a little bit longer to get your hands on the game. The game was set to release on 27 August. However, a recent update from game director Yu Suzuki and publisher Deep Silver revealed that the game has been delayed again. The game’s new release date is 19 November 2019.
Both Suzuki and Deep Silver said that the reason for the delay is to polish it up before release. They also asked their fans to wait patiently to get a “true Shenmue experience”. This isn’t the first time the game has been delayed since its announcement back at Sony’s E3 2015 press conference with a planned release date of December 2017. It was delayed to late 2018, after which it was delayed again and slated to release on August 27, 2019. This was until the most recent update where it was delayed to November.
