Honestly I think Shenmue 3 has a very good chance of being successfull.
But the main preponderance in my view is how much Sony will promote the game.
Is Sony does a good push on the game, it might sell really well...
Sorry but the Sony talk needs to stop.
Sony didnt save Shenmue III. Sony didnt fund Shenmue III. What they did was provide indie level of support through their 3rd Party Production arm (which is basically a tiny department with very limited means). SCE isnt even involved in any way in Shenmue III. Sony doesnt publish the game, they dont fund it, they just provide assistance the same way they did for any indie they had an exclusivity deal going. That + the E3 showing, which honestly, benefited Sony more than it benefited Shenmue. To this day, they dont even mention the game or upload medias.
