Publisher Devolver Digital just acquired a studio that is well-known for their work on the Serious Sam franchise - Croteam. A serious acquisition indeed.

The two companies released a joint statement where they've talked about their mutual history. They've focused on the period between the release of the original Serious Sam and the reconnection of the two companies in 2011 (during the production of Serious Sam 3).

Here's the full statement: "What's certain is that our future together is ultra exciting with new projects like The Talos Principle 2, more Serious Sam games, and original IP from Croteam and the Croteam Incubator studios. 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. Both companies are thrilled to share this news and hope that you're as excited about our future together as we are - it's going to be a lot of fun."

Serious Sam 4 is now available on Google Stadia and PC.
