Deep Silver are announcing a lot of delays today. Unfortunately we have to report that Shenmue III has been delayed, and it will now release in 2019 for the PC and PlayStation 4.
It was originally set for Q3 2018, so it might be safe to assume that it will released in Q1 2019, but we don't know for sure.
Here's what Deep Silver said about it, in a brief statement.
Deep Silver today announce that their upcoming release Shenmue III has been moved and will now release in 2019.
The extra time will be used to polish the quality of the game even further, to the high standards it deserves and release the product in the best possible timeframe.
