Shenmue III to "Assess" EGS Exclusivity

Kickstarter update from Ys Net, Epic Games and Deep Silver follows up to the recent news that Shenmue III will be a one-year exclusive on the Epic Games Store (thanks Eurogamer). This caused considerable backlash fuelled by previous indications there will be a Steam version of the action/adventure sequel. In a post made during E3 they acknowledge the outcry and while they don't actually say anything will change, they do say they would "assess the situation" once they were back from the show:
We want to make sure that the Backers are aware that we are listening to their concerns. We kindly ask all our fans to have some patience, we are currently at E3 demoing the game and need to get back to our respective offices to assess the situation and together find a way forward to justify the trust you placed in us.
