In the day yesterday we picked up in GamesFreeBall that the patrons of Shenmue 3 will see their money back in case of dissatisfied feeling with the decision to launch the video game in scoop for Epic Games Store. This decision has been made after guaranteeing Fortnite parents’ store money for this and other cases.
” Epic is funding the cost of all Kickstarter rebates resulting from the move of Shenmue III to Epic Games Store, so reimbursements will not reduce the development of Ys Net, “clarified Tim Sweeney, executive director of trade managers, with a message on his Twitter profile.
The decision has not been taken exclusively for Shenmue III, and according to the founder of Epic Games it will affect those titles that are in the same situation.
Sweeney added that they will coordinate with other stores to ensure availability of key in advance or payment of refunds at the time of announcement.

When future games go Epic-exclusive after offering crowdfunding rewards on other PC stores, we’ll either coordinate with colleagues at the other stores to ensure key availability in advance, or guarantee refunds at announcement time.
