A new update on Kickstarter by Ys Net offers a "revision concerning PC option availability" for Shenmue III, their action/adventure sequel (thanks Siliconera). The announcement that the game would be an Epic Games Store exclusive for one year caused an uproar from backers who were originally promised Steam keys. This prompted an offer of refunds that also included word that backers would indeed receive their Steam keys once the EGS exclusivity expired. Now their new update says that their negotiations with Valve cast this plan in doubt:

Please note the following revision concerning PC option availability.

In the previous Update On PC Version Rewards, the following option for the PC (Epic Games Store) version was announced:

"If selecting either the PC Physical or PC Digital version, an option to also receive a Steam key one year later will be available."

As negotiations with Valve are ongoing, we are not able to make a firm commitment at this point concerning the availability of the Steam keys.

Requests for Steam keys will be accepted through the survey, however, there is the possibility that Steam keys will ultimately not be distributed depending on negotiations with Valve. An announcement will be posted in the updates with the outcome of the negotiations.

We apologize for this revision to the previously stated PC option.



SIGHHH
