It's now coming just two weeks after Death Stranding.
Shenmue 3

Shenmue III has officially been given a three month delay. This news comes courtesy of a Yu Suzuki update to the official Shenmue III Kickstarter page. The game was originally slated to drop on August 27, 2019 but has now been pushed back until November 19, 2019.

This now places the game just two weeks after the release of Death Stranding and just four days after Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. I'm sure there will be even more titles released in this particular window. The end of the year is usually one of the busiest as far as new game releases are concerned.

The full content of the delay announcement can be read below.

Hello Everyone,

Today, Yu Suzuki & Deep Silver would like to give a message concerning the release date.

Shenmue III will now release on 19th November 2019.

[before] August 27, 2019

[new] November 19, 2019

Whilst almost ready, the game simply needs a little more refinement before being truly finished.

We feel that the extra time we have will help us deliver the true Shenmue experience players around the world deserve!

We thank you for your patience and understanding,

Yu Suzuki & Deep Silver
