Serious Sam 3: BFE has been delayed by around a month, to November 22nd.
The news was announced by Alen Ladavac in a recent post on the SeriousZone.com forums (via Gamefront). The Croteam co-founder said, “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 18th.
“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.
Promising an official announcement later today (perhaps with a concrete date), Ladavac continued, “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.”
It’s a shame, but as ever with delayed games, we hope it’s for the best.
