Not surprised, most major Kickstarter games get a significant delay so I was expecting this. They should take as much time as is reasonable to make an awesome game.

Not surprised.
Hope development doesn't end up being too expensive for them, because i really want Shenmue 3 to be profitable, besides good.

Surprised it is only delayed until mid-late 2018, I wouldn't mind too much if it was till 2019/2020 at this point as long as the product that comes it reasonable. And by reasonable I don't mean a massive AAA game to match the scale of Shenmue I/2 but something that at least felt similar with all characters have dialogue etc. I hope they don't have to cut too many corners with the smaller team!

Now, lets hope Sega has some Shenmue HD teasers for us next week? ;)

Always thought that was the plan, a mid-late 2018 release. Anyways, not too worried they've been pretty good with keeping people informed on the progress of the game, which is always a good sign with these.

Possible that no Shenmue 3 this year because Sega has been bothering Yu to work on their HD remaster?
It's more likely the reason is simply the December 2017 target was given before they tripled their 2 million goal. The scope/length of the project had to be expanded to accomodate that (even if they were expecting it to exceed 2 million from being at the conference).
