Croteam announced today that Jonas and Verena Kyratzes will be writing screenplay for Serious Sam 4. Jonas wrote the screenplay for The Talos Principle, and brought Verena for the purposes of Serious Sam 4.
Serious Sam 4 was originally planned for a Q4 2014 release. However, Croteam focused on The Talos Principle and as a result of that, Serious Sam 4 was delayed indefinitely.
Jonas Kyratzes said:
“I was a fan of Serious Sam before I got to work with Croteam, so I must admit I was sort of hoping I might be involved with the next one if The Talos Principle went well. But more than that, we immediately clicked with the team, were treated like family, and really wanted to keep working with them. Going to Croatia and working in the office just confirmed that.”
Verena Kyratzes added:
“I didn’t really expect to be doing this. At first I was just suggesting some ideas, some bits of dialogue, but eventually I ended up writing an entire draft of the script and working full-time with the team in Croatia. It was a very pleasant surprise, because ever since Talos, we’ve been good friends with the people at Croteam.”
Croteam’s Damjan Mravunac concluded:
“Storyline is being shaped out at the moment, and we can only say – it will be worth the wait!”
