According to the insider AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem, who is considered as a reliable source, we can look forward to an announcement about Shenmue this weekend. However, he did not reveal what is hidden behind the whole thing in detail.
Dusk Golem caused speculation again via Twitter and pointed out that we can look forward to an announcement about Shenmue this weekend. The insider did not reveal what the whole thing was about in detail, but at least narrowed down the announcement about the popular brand a little. First of all, the most important detail: We shouldn’t expect the announcement of Shenmue 4.
It is also said that behind the revelation there are no ports of Shenmue, Shenmue 2, or Shenmue 3 to other platforms. Instead, we are dealing with “something entirely brand new and more than a book series or a documentary.” According to Dusk Golem, a crowdfunding campaign is not necessary because the project has already been financed.
Since several well-known video game series have received a corresponding series on the Netflix streaming platform in recent months, it is speculated that the upcoming announcement could indeed be related to a Netflix series.
The previous title, Shenmue 3, was released in the last year on November 19, 2019, on PS4 and PC.
We may learn more in the days ahead.
Just to clarify a few things on the Shenmue announcement:
-It's not Shenmue 4
-It's not a port of Shenmue 1,2, 3
-It's something entirely brand new.
-It's more than a book series or a documentary.
-It's not being kickstarted, already funded.
