Shenmue 3 still at least possible

Written by David Stellmack

Sega might let Yu Suzuki do it
When the talk of gaming sequels that have yet to be made starts, it always seems that one title rises up to the top of the list. A sequel to Shenmue 2 (or Shenmue 3, if you will) is one title that it seems many people want to see happen, but so far Sega has not been hot on the idea.

Speaking at a panel at GDC 2011 the creative force of the series creator, Yu Suzuki, was asked if we would even see a Shenmue 3. He replied that he thinks that Sega will let him make it, but nothing is guaranteed.

Suzuki also set the record straight about the budget for Shenmue, claiming that it cost $47 million to make and not the $70 million that Sega has been quoted as reporting. Of course, budget and profitability of Shenmue 3 are a concern for Sega, but hearing that it is still possible is better than hearing no.

The development of Shenmue was the final nail in the coffin of SEGA, it basically bankrupted the old SEGA as we all loved and left a shell of its former glory

No it did not. Shenmue on Dreamcast was a success and sold quite well. If anything it was the CEO of the Dreamcast days that screwed up the company by pulling out of the console business where in fact there was still a very high demand for Dreamcast systems and games...
