... Or it could just be that they want to honour the original games integrity. Which is honestly the right way to go. But taking this long to strike up new deals? It's a pee take tbh with you. I fear if it's not green lit by now, anything we see before Shenmue 3 will just be a rushed job. Saying that, I'd just be happy with straight ports/slightly optimised versions at this point anyway.
