    These guys must be swimming in money since the smash hit of Fall Guys.

    Maybe Serious Sam 5 won't take 9 years to be released.

    SS4 took them 9 years to make, and it ended up being a buggy mess with graphics worse than in SS3. This game screams mismanagement.

    I wonder what was happening behind the scenes.

    Good. Croteam are a good fit for what Devolver does, and can stop trying to be AAA developers who make ugly and buggy games.

    should it be considered as a teaser?

    It definitely feels like Croteam is almost shackled by Serious Sam, given how - let's be kind and say 'mixed' the initial release Serious Sam 4 turned out to be.

    Devolver hasn't really done anything too bad far as know, and they've been partnered numerous times in the past so it seems like a good mix. So long as we don't get any more of those indie spinoff games.

    Wish more publishers were like DD. This can only be positive.
