May 16th must be the “Day of Delays” because not only did Shenmue 3 get delayed, but Metro Exodus which is published by THQ Nordic is also receiving a delay according to a press release. Instead of coming out late 2018, now the team is shooting for Q1 2019.
In the press release, they really didn’t explain why the game was getting pushed back. It’s mainly just some business jargon that the average gamer would not care about. Even still, we should be able to get some coverage this year since the game will be shown off again. Stay tuned for more updates.
