Seaman 2 Also Not Coming Stateside
We found a bit of a noteworthy interview involving Sega of America’s president Simon Jeffery. He has officially quashed any and all rumors about a potential next installment in the Shenmue franchise.
When asked if Shenmue III was on the way, Jeffery told reporters succinctly, “there are no plans for it right now.”
That is a better glimmer of hope than Seaman 2 gets, however. When asked if the game would be released domestically, Jaffry simply said “no.” You may remember that Seaman 2 got a Playstation 2 release in Japan only.
So, the hope is there for Shenmue fans, but it is dwindling fast.
