Question Tommygun easter egg in The Last Hope

Today, I was looking at a discussion thread in BFE about Serious Sam 4, until I found this. Source is here.

As you can see, the patent dates on the Thompson actually represent the release dates of the past Serious Sam games (without the indie spinoffs).

March 21.01 = Serious Sam: The First Encounter
February 2.02 = Serious Sam: The Second Encounter
October 11.05 = Serious Sam 2
November 22.11 = Serious Sam 3: BFE
October 9.16 (should be October 17.16) = Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope
December 7.17 = ???

So this led me to think that December 7, 2017 is half as likely to have Serious Sam 4, because Croteam are only still developing it. But all of the games represented by the release dates on the Tommy are canon, with the exception of Serious Sam 2. But what else do you want me to say about it?

Interesting. But where does Fusion 2017 fit in?

Well, the HD releases are not shown either, so I think remasters and indie titles are not counted. So it should be the next installment of the series.

Also, the date is December ?.17.

It's obviously December 7th, 'cause it's my brithday Though on the other hand, it could be 17/12/17, which seems to be a great release number as well.
But, anyways, whatever that day is and whatever it means, everyone in community already says that Croteam will postpone the release date for at least a week-two.

Was the LH a full version? If not, could be by the end of year, a LH full version would come out?

I agree a bit with LordAngus here. Don't get your hopes up too high. It might be another canon Serious Sam indie title, because Serious Sam 4 is still sort of early in development. And yes, I also heard about that Dark Side of Gaming article about that Tommygun easter egg.

CNT, TLH release date is already there, why put it twice? Also only major SS entries are presented there, no indie/spinoffs/remakes. And CT retweeted this. So there's little chance this isn't SS4.

And even if it is somehow not SS4, December is still far enough, so by the time it comes we're going to have some info about SS4 anyway and that won't be a big disappointment like E3 for many.

That is not what I said. What I meant is that this date is probably Serious Sam 4 and I am hoping that there will not be another SSVR calamity.

I've already learned that.

The hard way.

Two times.

Maybe this is the reason why I don't feel hyped. After the VR reveal fiasco I felt a total "hype meltdown".

And now I'm like "Just sittin' 'n waitin' " until they reveal something.

And forget what Solais said: All the other dates are releases of the main games of the franchise, and the VR games aren't part of the main series.

That said, if Serious Sam 4 will be revealed this December I don't expect any big game revelations, just the official announcement and a logo or screenshot. Maybe a small teaser if we're really lucky.

You're confusing matters. All of the other dates shown on the tommygun are release dates. So it would be safe to assume that we can expect a SS title (SS4 or something else) will be released in December, not announced.

I will remain reluctant about it truly being SS4, but you just never know. Nothing was really shown about The Talos Principle until a few months before release. However, since we know absolutely nothing about the development of SS4 thus far, it's really hard to ascertain whether or not a 2017 release date is feasible or not. I mean, they could be pretty far along in the groundwork. The last 3-5 months will be focused on polishing existing assets and it will be during this period that screenshots/videos will actually be revealed.

Again, I would expect a game release, not an announcement, in December. I just hope they release it early enough in the month that they can take advantage of Christmas shopping sprees

Indeed releases... or could be SSV release.

Looks like I am hoping there won't be SS4? Why? Been too long of a wait, sorta feels we passed SS4 already.

MS does that all the time... Win95, the Win98, then Win2000... WinXP, then Win10...
Maybe Nvidia does that too with there card numbering?
Intel does every Generation, so far, is 1,2,3,4,5,6,7... still plan on 8th and 9th... but throws all kinds of chips in each generations.
Heck, SS does that too... SS:TFE and SS:TSE are both of one SS1, right?

Then it's Serious Sam 4 then... I cannot count if Serious Fusion is counted as part of it, but it's just a combination of HD, VR and BFE in one.

This makes more sense, a December 2018 release date for Sam4? Count me in.

Doesn't mean it'll be in December though, maybe they were like "well, we will definitely finish it in 2018, just change the year to 18". It may or may not come a bit earlier.

I can just see it now... obviously this dialogue is translated from Croatian.

Random CT Employee: Boss, we've successfully patched in the SS4 easter egg into SamVR:TLH!
Alan: Excellent! Now we just play the waiting game for someone to discover it.
Employee: Of course, fans will flip out when they find out a new SS game is coming out this year!
Alan: This year? I told you to put down December, 2018!!!!
Employee: What?! ... ... ... Shit! Shit! Shit! Shit! Shiiiit!
Alan: Hurry! Fix it before somebody notices it!
*See news feed filled with coverage of potential Serious Sam easter egg*
Both: Fuck.
