Shenmue 3 Kickstarter reaches beyond $6.3 million
Series creator Yu Suzuki is presenting a third installment in the Shenmue series and requested during this year's E3 convention that fans contribute $2 million towards making this installment a reality. Within a month of announcing the campaign during PlayStation's E3 conference, over $6.3 million has been funded by fans making certain that a series they adore will continue.
Working towards a goal
Fans around the world contributed as much as they could to make Shenmue 3 a reality, understanding that the large milestone of $10 million was required to make the game truly "open world". Sony will additionally be providing an uncertain amount of money to assist with the production, marketing, and publishing of Shenmue 3. But what is certain, is that over $2 million has been raised, so the game will be produced.
Release and Expectations
With the $6.3 million raised, Shenmue 3 will be produced but unfortunately the amount to make the game "truly open world" was not obtained. The target date for release is December 2017 on the PlayStation 4 and PC.
The Shenmue 3 Kickstarter had 69,320 backers calculating $6,333,296 in total.
Great job on making Kickstarter history Shenmue 3. What do you think of those incredible backer numbers?
