While this shouldn’t be any surprise given the limited amount of coverage the game has had since its 2015 reveal, Shenmue III has been pushed out of its original 2018 release window to a new home sometime in 2019.

The reasoning is simply that the game needs extra time for polish and to meet the high standards it deserves.

With this news it could mean the game will be MIA at E3 2018 this year, however I won’t be surprised if we get a small trailer to at least remind everyone of its existence.
