Shibuya Productions president and founder of Shenmue 3, Cedric Biscay, has told fans to anticipate many surprises associated with the game, while also indicating that the PlayStation 4 and PC version of Shenmue 3 will be released this year. Biscay posted this from his personal Twitter account:

With development on Shenmue 3 was especially slow, many were worried that the PC version of the game is a rushed port. But, Biscay’s remarks imply that the PlayStation 4 and PC versions are being developed concurrently, meaning that they might share the exact same release date.
Considering the fact that Shenmue 3 is planned for a release later this year, there’s hardly any footage of the game thus far. With funds coming in from Shibuya Productions, Sony and also an extremely successful Kickstarter campaign, the highly anticipated open-world action adventure game will launch sometime in 2018 for PlayStation 4 and PC.
