Let us know your thoughts on the further delay of Shenmue 3 in the comments!
Following the delay of Metro Exodus, Deep Silver has also announced that Shenmue 3 will now target a 2019 release.
Shenmue 3 was officially announced during Sony's E3 2015 presentation, with the game being developed using funds from a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign.

Thankfully, the Shenmue collection featuring the original two games should hopefully still be releasing last this year for PS4/Xbox One. The game is now being developed by Ys Net, an independent development studio founded by franchise creator Yu Suzuki.
