Mike Hayes: “Never say never” to Shenmue 3

SEGA loves teasing our poor little hearts regarding Shenmue releases. But things are turning positive, Shenmue franchise turned from a dead franchise to one with new releases. It started this year with Ryo appearing in Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing and now the newly announced Shenmue City. But what about Shenmue 3?

“While at present we have no plans for the franchise [on next-gen consoles], the response to CVG’s question has certainly shown the Shenmue legacy ignites a lot of passion among fans. Never say never…” Mike Hayes

I really hope he didn’t mean that he doesn’t have plans for the franchise to return next generation, because that would just piss me off. I think the Shenmue fans have been waiting long enough for their game, now deliver. YS NET is open, get them some good programmers and get this thing cracking.

    All this awesome Shenmue news is really really getting me excited. I mean. So it isn't coming any time soon… I can wait a few years.

    Forget friends and family, I've spent the last decade looking both ways before I cross the road simply so that when Shenmue 3 is finally released I won't be dead…

    Looking forward to the day I have Shenmue 3 in my hands and I can once more play in traffic.

    I think the current generation of console hardware has just perpetually been referred to as next-gen.

    There will be no other, that's why.. Next step is upgrade modules or components or something.
