Shenmue III developer Ys Net today posted its latest monthly report, confirming that the game won’t be at E3 2017, this time providing a look at the model for a new character.
Additionally, the development team confirmed that Shenmue III won’t be at any game events in June, including E3.
“We have also been receiving questions from our backers regarding our plans to participate in upcoming game shows. While our schedule has yet to be finalized, we will be devoting June to game development and as a result, will unfortunately not be participating in any game shows. On the other hand, we look forward to bringing you our monthly updates and hope you do too!”
E3 2017 runs June 13-16 in Los Angeles, though things actually begin on June 10 with the start of EA’s events and then continue on Sunday, June 11, with briefings from Microsoft and Bethesda.
Shenmue III is in development for PlayStation 4 and PC.
