    Microsoft won't make Shenmue 3 for Xbox One, wants to "focus on our own franchises"

    I'm not likely to have one of our first party studios build Shenmue," says Spencer
    Newly promoted Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has once again taken to Twitter to field questions about Shenmue 3, a game Microsoft would love to have on Xbox One, but not a game that Microsoft is actually developing.

    Some bright spark created a fake trademark for the probably-mythical project last November, cue a hurricane of speculation. Spencer and other platform execs have been repeatedly pressed on the subject, much to their bemusement and consternation. "There is just no winning in answering Shenmue questions," he ruefully observed yesterday. "I'm not likely to have one of our first party studios build Shenmue."Name:  sham.jpg

    If you ask me, releasing the game would be the biggest mistake any company could make at this point - pent-up hope and expectation is such that the experience would inevitably fall short. Right? On the other hand, Shenmue 3 would make a formidable Xbox One exclusive.
