Shenmue III is Performing Below Expectations
 

 
Publisher Deep Silver and developer Ys Net released the long awaited third installment in the Shenmue series, Shenmue III, for the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC via the Epic Games Store in November 2018.

Deep Silver in their earnings report revealed sales for Shenmue III performed below their expectation, which has meant they've lowered their estimated revenue. Other reasons for the lower estimated revenue is due to Biomutant not having a release date and the delay of Final Fantasy VII Remake.

The publisher estimated the game reached 50,000 players by the end of 2019. However, they are not able to track sales generated on the Epic Games Store, but they did note the game did claim a spot on the Top 20 best-sellers list for several weeks.

Shenmue series creator Yu Suzuki said recently he would like to make Shenmue VI. With the third entry performing below expectations a fourth game in the series is less likely to happen.

Here is an overview of the game:

The brainchild of award-winning game director, Yu Suzuki, Shenmue is commonly known as one of the most ambitious game projects in history, which captured the imagination of players from around the world. Shenmue established the open-world format for action RPG games. An awe-inspiring world with an immersive story, featuring cinematic sequences, a realistic f*ghting system, and entertaining mini-games, Shenmue garnered acclaim and adoration all over the world.

Shenmue III sees the eagerly anticipated continuation of the epic story-driven saga. Take control of Ryo Hazuki, a teenage martial artist, determined to unravel the mystery behind his father's murder and to exact revenge on the k*ller.

Explore a vibrant, colourful open world, meet intriguing characters and endeavour on a cinematic adventure which will take you further into enemy territory and deeper into the mystery of the Phoenix Mirror.

And then you never spoke about it again. You've ducked every conversational attempt made about the game. The highlight was your name in pink in the credits.

They should have tapered their expectations and only expected to have no more than who donated via Kickstarter.

It's really just for the fans of the original who want to finish the story. They didn't upgrade anything. Plays exactly like it did over almost 20 years ago.

I really enjoyed it but this really isnt a surprise to many. Game Dnflty isnt for every one.. Most of us who's been around long enough knew that for almost two decades lol..

I personally gave it a 8/10.. My biggest gripe with it was it lacked the polish in certain areas.. Even as a crowdfunded game it shouldve been sharper specifically going in and out of cutscenes... Other then That I really enjoyed it..

Weak story and lack of polish aside, they put way too much time and energy towards thanking all the kickstarter backers. A whole a*s temple filled with pictures and signatures from dad bod geek's n sh*t?

I've been sh*tting on this game since the day it was announced. It wasn't anything personal, I just know the director doesn't understand how to make fun video games. Nobody wants to run real life errands in a game.

The first 2 Shenmue games are straight up trash if you can get past the nostalgia. I don't know why anybody expected Shenmue 3 to be any different
