If you’ve been looking forward to getting your mitts on Serious Sam 3 in mid-October, we’ve got some bad news for you. Croteam has announced a one-month delay for the upcoming shooter.
While there’s been no official announcement yet, Croteam’s Alen Ladavac revealed the delay in a post on the SeriousZone.com forums. Here’s what he had to say:
An official announcement about details will be released to the press later today, but we (both Devolver and Croteam) think that you guys deserve to hear it from us first:
We have been working very hard on SS3 all the way, and especially in these recent months trying to make it for the promised October 18th. In the past few days, we did some reassessments, based both on internal results, and on beta testing feedback, and determined that we would want to do some more gameplay tuning, bugfixing and optimization – more than would be possible within the given timeframe. This is the game that we have invested a lot of love and work into, and one that we know the series’ fans are expecting a lot from.
So we decided it needed one extra month of development time. You will know details later in the day, but for now – one month it is – one month of extra tuning and polish that Serious Sam 3 deserves if we really love it and want it to be a great game.
This is a bit disappointing to fans of over-the-top shooters everywhere, but to help you while away the time until it gets released, how about watching these three trailers? There, is that better? Now mark your calendars for a mid-November release.
