Shenmue III was officially announced during Sony’s E3 2015 press conference alongside a crowdfunding campaign for the game on Kickstarter. The title is currently in development at Yu Suzuki’s independent company, Ys Net.
Back in August of 2017, Ys Net and Deep Silver announced a collaboration to publish the Shenmue sequel on both PC and PS4.
“I am very pleased to secure this global partnership with Deep Silver, which is comprised of incredible men and women who have a deep passion for bringing Japanese titles to the rest of the world”, director and Shenmue creator Yu Suzuki said. “Throughout this process, Deep Silver has expressed a deep passion for Japanese games, the Shenmue franchise and its fans—this gives me further confidence in Shenmue III and that we have found the best partner possible.”
“We are very excited for the continuation of Ryo Hazuki’s journey in Shenmue III, and are confident the game will deliver the story and gameplay PlayStation fans have been waiting for,” said Florian Hunziker, Vice President of PlayStation’s Third Party Relations & Developer Technology Group. “The global partnership between Ys Net and Deep Silver will help realize Yu Suzuki’s vision for Shenmue III—we are thrilled to see his spirit of innovation materialize on PS4.”
Shenmue III is slated for a release later this year on PC and PS4.
