I don't understand how can it be "early pre-alpha" after 7 years, with Talos Principle being released 4 years ago, and that was supposed to have used SS4 as a base ? They must have ditched the original SS4 the same way id Software did original Doom 4. I expected this to be way more advance and release after summer.

As an example, if You remember seeing old[er] "in progress" screenshots of DNF, You'd notice that the screenshots look nothing like the "final" game and in-progress screenshots from different stages of the development also look nothing alike.
When taking a while on making a game, it is not uncommon to scrap parts of the game / its visuals to update and "catch up". (In the aforementioned DNF case, the need to "catch up" kept being bigger than their development pace, hence taking that damn long)
And I gotta say, the (at this point really old) Sam4 footage from the making-of Talos video looks a lot more like Sam3-on-roids than what these previews have to offer.

TL;DR
Croteam got stuck in a minor development hell there for a bit.

P.S. if You really really want to know more
just ask these guys who we know are already testing it:

then realize they're under NDA and Ya shouldn't bug them with questions they're not allowed to answer... asshole.

Graphics in SS were always either on top (classic FE/SE), or at least among the best ones on the market, when the game arrive (SS2, SS3). So yeah, we care about graphics.

I don't know how many members Croteam has exactly, but I don't think they really have a seat compare to the whole army of graphic designers that the AAA game developers have.

There it is! Serious Sam is back in the combine harvester! Proof positive beyond a shadow of a doubt that The Next Encounter has been officially declared officially canon!

Can't wait to see the new Dum-Dum!
