Devolver Digital Has Purchased Croteam
Devolver Digital has officially acquired the team behind Serious Sam and The Talos Principle, Croteam. Croteam has worked with Devolver Digital for around a decade, and now they’ve officially joined forces to continue releasing Serious Sam titles for years to come. Croteam will apparently retain full creative control of their projects as Devolver Digital already knows what the team is capable of. Serious Sam 4 is available right now on PS4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC.
“Nearly thirty years ago, a group of childhood friends got together to start Croteam from a small garage in Zagreb,” said a recent post from Croteam. “The team dabbled in soccer/football games before putting together a dazzling tech demo that would become Serious Sam and change the path of the studio forever. But it was a struggle to sign the Serious Sam demo with a publisher and only one label, Gathering of Developers, showed interest and support.”
That support blossomed into friendship and respect which would eventually reconnect Croteam with some of the Gathering of Developers team when they later helped found Devolver Digital. 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,” continued Croteam. “And like that, the next big Serious Sam game brought old partners back together and forged a decade of friendship and dedication. Since then Croteam and Devolver Digital have partnered on dozens of games, from the frantic Serious Sam series to the award-winning The Talos Principle across PC, consoles, VR, and mobile platforms. Croteam and Devolver Digital have been dating for so long that we decided to go ahead and just get married.”
