Post Serious Sam 4 won't be at E3

https://twitter.com/Croteam/status/862579415510917120

It has come to my attention that Serious Sam 4 won't be at E3. It's actually good that I'm saying this now instead of having to wait until E3 to find this out and being disappointed afterwards. Though, Croteam stated that they'll have some progress info soon.

On the plus side, expect some "other cool plans" from Croteam. Guess that will maybe be Bogus Detour and I Hate Running Backwards related.

I doubt Croteam will announce more about the development of the indie titles, since they're made by completely different companies. So I'm curious what Croteam has to say at E3... probably something VR related, though.

I'm not surprised. Perhaps Croteam has something they could show, but I don't blame them for opting out of E3 being the platform for announcements. Because, let's face it, smaller development teams get drowned out at E3 by the AAA publishers, unless they manage to get showcased at one of the Sony/MS/Nintendo conferences. Devolver Digital does the smart thing by having a completely separate booth located outside the convention center.

It's the smart choice to make SS4 announcements outside of E3. Announcing things on your own terms allows the game to get the attention it deserves, rather than just being buried by the 100's of other announcements.

Didn't TTP get a brief showing at the 2014 Sony conference though?

Anyway, I'm okay with no Sam 4 this year. It's clear that Croteam is taking their time to craft something truly great. I already waited 6 years, I can wait one more.

I think SSVR was announced during E3, was it not?

Both Talos and SSVR were announced on E3 and they received the attention necessary.

In all fairness, SSVR was one of E3's side bitches and wasn't shown at one of the major conferences. But still, a little attention is better than no attention.
