As we near the second half of 2018, it should be no surprise that some games get delayed into next year.

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.

Shenmue 3 stands as one of the most-funded crowdfunded games of all-time with $6.3 million pledged. In addition, Sony is helping to fund development, providing the design team with enough resources to realize their vision.
