Yu Suzuki: Without Deep Silver, Shenmue 3 would not be a game featuring open world elements

Shenmue 3 was a big hit because of crowdfunding but without the concrete help of Deep Silver it would not be a game aspired to be an open-world. This is the “confession” of the creator of the game, Yu Suzuki.

The partnership between YS.Net and the publisher Deep Silver has proven to be a crucial point to the Shenmue III project, as revealed by Yu Suzuki during a recent interview published on Eurogamer.

The Japanese producer commented on the collaboration with the German publisher announced during last Gamescom: “We originally pitched a scalable game since, as you know, Kickstarter has stretch goals and now, after finding a new partner with Deep Silver, we’re able to scale up based on the original plan. I’m fully ready to make the game with a larger scale featuring open world elements.”

Asked about the Sony partnership, Suzuki added that “Sony is also still supporting us. Sega too, in fact! I shouldn’t forget about them.”

Shenmue III is currently under development for PlayStation 4 and PC, with release scheduled for late 2018.

Recently, Shenmue 1 and 2 Pack collection has appeared on the lists of some retailers, does this mean that an announcement is coming soon?
