Shenmue 3 Picks up Publisher

Shenmue III has picked up a publisher. Deep Silver has agreed to release the game, which was originally unveiled at E3 2015, and subsequently crowdfunded via a Kickstarter campaign.

The company – better known for publishing Dead Island and Saints Row – will distribute physical and digital copies of the game on PlayStation 4 and PC.

"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," said creator Yu Suzuki.

"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."

Shenmue III was crowdfunded in 2015, pulling in $6.33 million USD from nearly 70,000 backers. The game is slated to arrive in the second half of 2018.

Im wondering why they didn't put it on pc and xbox in the first place? do they not like money or do they somehow think they aren't big enough markets? just hope sega is working on the ports to pc now :p
