After Duke Nukem Forever got tangled up in the American legal system earlier this year, we were deathly afraid that our career-defining reportage of action shooters starring brash, muscular, wise-cracking manly men that are trapped in development limbo – only to surface once every year-and-a-half or so -- would forever go to waste. Thankfully, though, Serious Sam 3’s filling that oddly specific niche – at least, for now.
"Serious Sam 3 is happening for sure," CroTeam boss Roman Ribaric told Destructoid. "It is currently planned to be finished in 2010."
Serious Sam 3 was originally announced in 2007. Then, with all the grace and subtlety its hulking, foul-mouthed protagonist could muster, it vanished. And now, here we are nearly three years later -- with nary a screenshot or trailer to shield Serious Sam 3 from the vapor.
With any luck, though, CroTeam will have something to show us in 2010. Unless, of course, Serious Sam 3 is a text adventure, which – given the relative lack of screenshots and trailers, combined with the series' purposefully nostalgic nature – would make so much sense.
