That was just a riff on the game's ending. It was later confirmed that there wasn't going to be a second one for Shenmue II. In fact the postmortem included some aspects of the second game - the Guilin vegetation and Kowloon apartments come to mind. But the main point of the exercise was to show other developers how a groundbreaking game was created from scratch, and that obviously applies more to the original than the sequel.
