Previously earmarked for October 18, The PC launch of Croteam's upcoming oldschool shooter sequel Serious Sam 3: BFE has been pushed back to November 23rd 2011. According to a press release
, the reason for the delay is because they're "adding in more polish and sweet, sweet action"
“Serious Sam 3: BFE is the next evolution in our beloved franchise and the team wants to take a little extra time to make it perfect for Serious Sam fans worldwide,” said Davor Hunski, Chief Creative Guy at Croteam. “The game is playing wonderfully and looks great so we are going through to balance the difficulty and fine tune the code to eliminate any technical issues at launch. And we’ll probably add some more enemies to the hordes to blow your mind.”
Of course, it wouldn't be a Serious Sam 3 press release without the obligatory quip from Devolver Digital CFO, who reminds us that he's suffering just as much as eager gamers from the wait:
“Looks like the wife is going to have to wait on pumping up the milk pillows until I’m rolling in that filthy Serious Sam3: BFE cash money,” said Fork Parker, Devolver Digital CFO. “Nobody likes a half-assed titjob. Nobody.”
Serious Sam 3: BFE is currently available for PC pre-order at a 10% discount over on Steam
