Croteam's Serious Sam 4 is due out this August on select platforms, but it appears Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners will have to wait a little while longer.

The reason? While you'd be forgiven for thinking it's only ready to go on PC, according to the game's publisher Devolver Digital, it's actually tied to its period of exclusivity... specifically on the cloud gaming service, Google Stadia. This was revealed by a representative of the company in an email exchange with Kotaku:

"The game is still coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 after its period of exclusivity is over with Stadia"

So, how long will the wait be? The DD rep added that Xbox One and PlayStation 4 wouldn't be receiving the game until next year. That means it'll be appearing on both of these platforms after - yep, after - the release of the next-generation systems.
