    shenmue 3.
    If you thought that the last time Shenmue III was delayed it would be the last, you'd be forgiven. The game was initially slated for a 2018 release after a successful Kickstarter campaign but it was delayed to August 27, 2019. This much anticipated title even seemed to be on track to maintain this release date after we saw new footage of the game a few months ago.

    However, in an update to backers, Yu Suzuki & Deep Silver announced today that Shenmue III's release has been pushed back again, this time for November 19th, 2019. The Kickstarter news update reads the following:

    Shemue III now releases for PCs and PS4 this November 19th.

    Shenmue 3...more like Half Life 3.

    Feels like this game has been delayed a dozen times now.

    It's only another 3 months. Polish and bug fixing is worth that delay.

    Hey, I don't mind that. Like Miyamoto once said, "A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad."

    Star Fox Zero, a Miyamoto game, was also delayed. And it was still bad.

    I had the chance to backout but I didn't take it. This is the only thing I ever kickstarted. I knew it was risky as hell, and I wish I didn't do it.

    I wasn't going to buy this game anyways, but if I was, I'd be pirating it by now. Too many delays.

    Sega has nothing to do with this. Yu Suzuki got the license when they dropped it, despite that they still had the rights to 1 and 2 that's why they were able to do the HD collection for those.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 was also around 100 GB. They used a second disc for install. I assume this will do the same.
