The publisher Devolver Digital have officially announced the acquisition of Serious Sam series and The Talos Principle developer Croteam. Devolver confirmed Croteam are working on The Talos Principle 2, more Serious Sam games and new IP.
"Devolver has acquired Croteam...or maybe Croteam has acquired Devolver...who could really know at this point in the relationship," Devolver Digital said in their announcement of the acquisition. Or perhaps it was Croteam that was behind the announcement?
Texas-based publisher say they are "ultra excited" for their future with Croteam, who brought us games like Serious Sam and The Talos Principle. The developer is currently working on a brand new The Talos Principle and Serious Sam games as well as some new IP.
"A decade ago Devolver Digital was just getting started and looking for its first project to partner on in the emerging digital distribution world. Similarly, Croteam was on the search for a partner it could trust to help them bring their beloved franchise back to prominence with the upcoming Serious Sam 3. And like that, the next big Serious Sam game brought old partners back together and forged a decade of friendship and dedication."
Devolver confirmed, with another hilarious joke, that Croteam will keep total creative freedom for their creations. "Croteam will, of course, keep total creative freedom and Devolver Digital gets to keep making dumb recommendations that Croteam just ignores - we prefer it that way."
