Yesterday was an important day for Shenmue III. The legendary Yu Suzuki, one of the most iconic names in the development of video games in the 80s and 90s, jumped onto the stage of the PC Gaming Show to new trailer for the title. The problem? In a very sibylline way that was announced that Shenmue III will be exclusive to Epic Games Store and that, of course, has not suited some fans who supported the project with Kickstarter with their money.
” This It does not affect me because I chose the PS4 version, but you should be prepared for legal action from other fans by promising them a Steam key and end up offering it at Epic Games Store, “commented an amateur. & Quot; I would Like a refund, I want the videogame on Steam as originally promised & quot ;, assured another. ” I doubt I can get a refund, but I’m going to accuse you of fraud if I’m not guaranteed receive a Steam key & quot ;, explained another one.
Many users remember that Epic Game Store did not exist when the videogame was started in its collective funding phase, and that the features of the PC version and even in the title requirements are mentioned in the Steam key. At the moment the number of comments on the crowd-funding website with protests about the decision is close to a thousand.
Even if the announcement of the exclusive with the Epic online store was produced on the project’s Kickstarter itself, Steam page of Shen mue 3 is still active at this time, and the launch of the game is mentioned for November 19, 2019.
