Originally scheduled for release in the middle of next month to compete with Battlefield 3, the third installment of Croteam's less-than-serious PC shooter franchise will now hit in mid-November, just in time to take on Modern Warfare 3.

Of course Serious Sam 3: BFE isn't really contending with this year's two hottest shooters. It takes a special breed of FPS fan to appreciate Sam's special brand of humor. That special breed of fan is going to have to wait until November 22 to do so. Why?


"Serious Sam 3: BFE is the next evolution in our beloved franchise and the team wants to take a little extra time to make it perfect for Serious Sam fans worldwide," said Davor Hunski, Chief Creative Guy at Croteam. "The game is playing wonderfully and looks great so we are going through to balance the difficulty and fine tune the code to eliminate any technical issues at launch. And we'll probably add some more enemies to the hordes to blow your mind."

Because it's not done yet. Fair enough!
