Last week, the Shadow Warrior team teased that a third entry in its first-person shooter series was in the works. Now, the studio behind the rebooted series – Flying Wild Hog – has officially announced Shadow Warriors 3. Alongside the announcement was a teaser trailer, and confirmation that the game will be coming in 2021 for PC.
In a press release, the game director (Kuba Opon) said “We are beyond excited to bring Shadow Warrior fans a completely fresh experience, and we can’t wait to show off the new features we have in store for them”. Once again, the game will focus on “fast-paced gunplay sequences, razor-sharp melee combat, and spectacular free-running movement.”
For long-time fans of the series, Opon offered some reassuring words, saying “we never forget Flying Wild Hog’s roots and we hope that Shadow Warrior 3 will feel like a homecoming for those fans that have been with us since the beginning. And we can’t wait to introduce new players to Lo Wang, our quick-witted hero with a tongue as sharp as his katana.”
Currently, Shadow Warrior 3 has only been confirmed for PC – though both Shadow Warrior 1 and 2 made their way to PlayStation and Xbox systems. Either way, the game has been given a vague release year of 2021, so there is still plenty of time for a console release announcement.
The Steam page is currently live, and the comedic (and highly meta) teaser trailer can be watched HERE. Fans will get their first look at gameplay at the Devolver Digital Direct, which is set to take place on the 11th of July at 8pm.
