Serious Sam HD A Possibility

Although Croteam had originally planned for a PSN version of forthcoming FPS remake Serious Sam HD, Croteam’s CEO Roman Ribaric has admitted to G4TV that they “couldn’t get additional financing to support [the] extra development time needed. It was either to do PSN by the same date or forget about it,” he said. “There was also a thought to find another team to do it, but nobody was either willing or realistically being able to do it in such short period.”

“We [have considered] doing PSN after we finish PC and XBLA,” he continued. “However, we keep hearing over and over from publishers, investors, marketing and other suits that players from one console, in this case PSN, wouldn’t want to get it later.” He referring to whether or not PS3 fans would want what would essentially be an Xbox 360 cast-off. “I would normally say that’s a lot of bull, but I will refrain here from my comment. What do your readers think?”


“It would feel perfect to have it on PSN as well,” he said. “However, we are a garage team of 20 people, although with a larger garage now, working on Serious Sam HD for PC and XBLA platforms. Along that, we are developing Serious Sam 3 and Serious Engine 3 tech for both platforms. Now, I know we are good, but we are not that good to add PSN and finish at the same time. Just kidding, we are that good, but we are not supermen.”
