Shenmue 3, the upcoming sequel to the beloved forklift simulator, will not be getting an Xbox One release.

You might be wondering how the question emerged in the first place – Shenmue 3 was announced at Sony’s E3 press conference in 2015, after all, and confirmed only for PS4 and PC afterwards.

Well: fans this week uncovered an Xbox One logo in the source code of the game’s official pre-order page. But publisher Deep Silver was quick to squash that new hope:

Yu Suzuki’s opus is due out on November 19th, and Alex recently dug into 15 whole minutes of Shenmue 3 gameplay footage.
