Shenmue III Delayed to November 19th 2019

Tuesday, June 4th, 2019

The much anticipated Shenmue III has suffered another delay. Fortunately the game is still planned to release this year, but it’ll now be launching November 19th, rather than August 26th as previously planned.

In a joint statement, Yu Suzuki’s company YS NET and publisher Deep Silver said that the game “needed more refinement before being truly finished.”

We’re all for delays in the name of improving a game’s quality, so here’s hoping this helps Shenmue III become the game that fans have been waiting for.

Shenmue III Delayed to 2nd Half of 2018

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

shenmue3

The inevitable Shenmue III delay has arrived! Shenmue III will now release in the 2nd half of 2018.

It had previously been slated for a December 2017 release but as was previously revealed, Shenmue III was not scheduled for an appearance at this year’s E3 which put a 2017 release into doubt.

Yu Suzuki announced the delay himself in the latest Kickstarter update and has said, “By utilising new technologies, we have been able to discover new possibilities and expressions. 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.”

Shenmue III will not be published by SEGA but instead by Sony. The game will eventually launch on PC and PS4.

SEGA Trademarks Shenmue III But Don’t Get Too Excited UPDATE SEGA Confirms Trademark is Fake

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

SEGA have filed a trademark for Shenmue III. This would be big news if it wasn’t for the fact that publishers do this all the time so that their intellectual properties are protected from usurpers.

The interesting thing is that SEGA are obviously still thinking about the series. If the company are aware of the public’s desire for a sequel then at least that can give us some hope that a sequel might still be in consideration/development.

More on this as we get it as the only source we have for the story is currently down due to the immense traffic they’re receiving.

UPDATE
An image of the trademark information is available on SEGAbits’ Facebook page. You can also see this below:

UPDATE 2
The trademark might also relate to the “postmortem” talk Yu Suzuki is doing at GDC 2014. This will discuss the whole of the Shenmue series an an hour-long talk translated by Mark Cerny. GDC runs from March 17th to the 21st in 2014. Sourced from Gamespot.

UPDATE 3
Blimey! More details: SEGA have trademarked Shenmue III through the company R.G.C. Jenkins & Co. This is the same company who handled the Sonic Lost World trademark. You can find it yourself by going to the OHIM website (click here) and searching for Shenmue III.

UDPATE 4
The Shenmue III trademark might be a fake. The trademark lacks an application reference number which would make the trademark legitimate. A similar hoax was recently registered with this same company on November 14th for Fallout 4. The registration was recently removed after it was proven to be a hoax.

UPDATE 5
SEGA has officially confirmed that the trademark is fake and the listing has now been removed. Full details at from Eurogamer.

Yu Suzuki Looking To Get The Shenmue License Back From SEGA

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Yu Suzuki is tugging at our heart-strings again. The man responsible for cult favourite RPG series Shenmue has announced through an interview at Shenmue Master that “Shenmue’s license is an IP that belongs to SEGA” and that “We can obtain the license from SEGA.”

Suzuki is clearly not going to rest until his series is complete. He even went on to reveal a major plot point that will be central to Shenmue III if it ever appears. Referring to an image that has been circulating the internet for some time that features the silhouette of an unknown charatcer, Suzuki said “This is the person who has trained with Iwao [Hazuki] in the olden days in China. Then, in the story that will take place after Shenmue II, he will become a “key” character!”

Fingers crossed that Suzuki is successful in his endevours!
