I have never gotten a chance to play Serious Sam II and no retailer sells it anymore so will it come out on Steam? 
 
If not any other ideas where to get the game? 
 
Thanks.

Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter is on Steam. It should be better than the original in every way. You missed a sale yesterday that included both SSHD First and Second Encounter for only $7.50.

Sorry, poor phrasing on my part. Why do you want the original Serious Sam II, as opposed to the HD remake?

There is no HD remake of SS II. SS II and Second Encounter are two different things.

That's fine. 
 
I am talking about Serious Sam II which is not on steam the one on available on Steam is Serious Sam: The Second Encounter which is basically Serious Sam (1) part 2. 
 
That is why I didn't understand you ^__^

publisher is different,  serious sam 2 publishing rights are owned by 2k.   the HD remakes are published by Devolver Digital who have employees from the original GOD(gathering of developers) publishing company which did the first game.  It's up to 2k games to decide whether they want to make a steam release.

It used to be free on Gametap but they don't have any more free games. It's still on Gametap if you want to pay for that once a month.

How about if I sign up then cancel the next month, do I keep the game?

@NekuSakuraba: Nope, they do sell games separately though metaboli but they do not have Serious Sam 2.

@NekuSakuraba: 
 
Here are a few options for you:

For PC


 It is available to buy for PC for $10 on Amazon right here  Xbox version is $29.99
 
You can probably try a free trial on Gametap for a month or something and play it and finish it. 

If you have an original XBOX


 Gamestop has the Xbox Version for 7.99 used. You can click the store availability button and see if any local stores by you have it in stock or you can just order it online.
 
If you have a Gamefly Account you can try to rent it
 
Hope that helps :)
