The hotly anticipated Shenmue III’s Kickstarter pulled in over six million dollars in 2015 and development has been slowly chugging along since. Ys Net has announced that they will be partnering with Deep Silver to publish the game on PlayStation 4 and PC. The game is currently scheduled to launch in the second half of 2018, almost a full year behind schedule. While the exact details of the partnership remain under wraps, partnering with a major publisher like Deep Silver will definitely smooth the release of physical copies of Shenmue III for PC and PlayStation 4.
