Serious Sam 4 is coming to PC and Stadia in August 2020. Yes, you read that right… Stadia. While previous previews of the game indicated it would also appear on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Google’s cloud gaming service will get Serious Sam 4 long before any traditional consoles.

“The game is still coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 after its period of exclusivity is over with Stadia,” a rep for publisher Devolver Digital told Kotaku over email, adding that those consoles won’t receive Serious Sam 4 until 2021 after further inquiry.

Serious Sam 4, developed by the Croatia-based Croteam, is the series’ first mainline game since 2011. In series of short preview videos released alongside today’s announcement, the developers show off what players can expect from the combat, enemies, weapons, music, and the new Legion system, which is said to support “hundreds of thousands” of enemies on-screen.

Steam is currently offering huge discounts on previous Serious Sam games to celebrate the news.


  • I suppose if you have as much money as google you can keep buying yourself friends in the hope that one of them Eventually might make you cool and/or relevant.

  • I am confused…
    Did they sign an exclusivity deal with Google to keep it off consoles?

    Or have they only created a PC version. (Since stadia streams PC) and haven’t finished the console ports?

  • From what I have seen of SS4 it looks terrible. They harp on about 100,000 enemies on screen. Not hard when they look like balls and clip each other. Really enjoyed SS1 and 2, 3 was ok. Will skip 4..

  • Ooh… i have been waiting for this for years…

    It’s been years since they announced it officially, also iirc they also teased it in The Talos Principal.
