Next Saints Row title is 'deep in development' says THQ Nordic

  1. Publisher THQ Nordic announced today in an earnings report that Volition, the studio behind the Saints Row franchise, is "deep in development" of the next SR game. It didn't have much else to offer, not even a loose timeframe, but fans are sure to say, "it's about time."

    The last full installment in the Saints Row series was just around six years ago. Since that time, Volition has only seen two other releases — the mediocre Saints Row: Gat out of Hell, which was a spin off of Saints Row IV, and multiplayer flop Agents of Mayhem.

    This guess is pure speculation, but Saints Row's 15th anniversary is August 29, 2021. I would not be surprised to see the game launch around that time. Depending on how "deep" the developers are, this would seem a reasonable estimate.

    Saints Row is not the only title THQ Nordic is lining up. Dambuster Studios is finishing up Dead Island 2 after picking up the reins from Sumo Digital.

    Additionally, TimeSplitters creator Steve Ellis has joined THQ to help plan another game in that franchise. The company stated that it picked up the rights to TimeSplitters last year.

    Volition needs to release FreeSpace 3 and finish the story.

    It'll be ruined in some way

    -epic store exclusive
    -unneeded multiplayer
    -dlc/microtransaction fest

    games industry deserves no hype these days

    As long as they keep it as outlandish as the last couple It will be an instant buy, I would say it's the GTA clone that found its own identity and had fun with it.
