The long-awaited Shenmue III is going to make you wait a little longer. The game won’t make its December 2017 release date and has been moved to the second half of 2018.

“By utilizing new technologies, we have been able to discover new possibilities and expressions,” Shenmue creator Yu Suzuki said in an official announcement. “In many ways, the game has become bigger and more beautiful than I initially expected.”

Suzuki added, “We do, however, need more time to deliver the game to you.”

The game was first announced at E3 2015 and followed up with a record-breaking Kickstarter.

It was previously revealed that Sony is helping to make the overdue sequel.
