Despite last year’s Shenmue I and II HD Collection coming to Xbox One, publisher Deep Silver have recently revealed that the long awaited third instalment won’t be coming to the platform, instead releasing solely on PlayStation 4 and PC.
The confirmation (or de-confirmation) comes from a Tweet where an eager fan asked the official Deep Silver Twitter account if a rumoured Xbox One release was true. Deep Silver unfortunately responded with the statement “There is no planned version of Shenmue III for Xbox One”.

What's more, Deep Silver has announced that the game will be an Epic Game Store exclusive on launch, as appears to be the trend with the titles they are publishing.
Those looking to play Shenmue III on PlayStation 4 or PC through Epic Game Store will be able to on 19th November 2019.
