'Shenmue III' Gets a Publisher
Shenmue III, one of Kickstarter's biggest video game success stories, now has a publisher. Deep Silver is teaming up with developer Ys Net to bring the long-awaited sequel to PlayStation 4 and PC. This is not a first for Deep Silver, GamesBeat reports. It also published other high-profile Kickstarters like Mega Man spiritual successor Mighty No. 9 and InXile Entertainment's Wasteland 2. Shenmue III is currently scheduled to release in the second half of 2018. "Shenmue is one of a few game franchises that have historical value whilst continuing to ignite passion across gamers. We are delighted to have signed this publishing partnership and look forward to utilizing our global publishing network to maximize the potential of this highly anticipated game," said CEO of Koch Media/Deep Silver Dr. Klemens Kundratitz in a statement.
