SEGA trademarking Shenmue 3 exposed as a hoax

27 Nov


As we suspected, we’re sorry to report that the news about SEGA trademarking Shenmue 3 we posted earlier today is almost certainly fake. Various hints lead to a hoax, for example the lack of an application reference number on the website.

We also discovered that a fake copyright for Fallout 4 (that anyway is still more probable than Shenmue 3) was registered with this same organization on November 14th and has since been removed. We’ll be keep you posted on the subject if anything new come up, but for now this trademark should be considered a hoax.

Anyway, Yu Suzuki will still attend a conference about Shenmue at next GDC 204.
