Croteam has announced Serious Sam 3, which was scheduled for release in in mid-October, has been delayed into November.

Croteam’s Alen Ladavac announced the relay on the forums, and said official word will be sent to the press later today.

“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 18,” he said. “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.”

Serious Sam 3 will be released on November 22.
