During its newest earnings name, writer THQ Nordic confirmed that a new Saints Row recreation is in growth at sequence developer Volition. As it’s possible you’ll know, Volition hasn’t shipped a full recreation within the sequence since 2013 when it launched Saints Row IV. That mentioned, that must be altering quickly. Unfortunately, no additional pertinent particulars are disclosed by THQ Nordic, however that is the primary time we have gotten affirmation a brand new entry within the beloved sequence is in growth, although Volition has teased as a lot up to now on a number of events.
It’s been 4 years since we final noticed the franchise, and 6 years since we final noticed it correct. Meanwhile, we’ve not seen or heard something out of Volition since August 2017, when it launched Agents of Mayhema recreation just like Saints Row (in some methods) and set in its universe, however that critically and commercially flopped. In different phrases, it is not very shocking to see it returning to the sequence it made a reputation for itself with.
Given that Agents of Mayhem launched two years in the past means we must be developing on a reveal of its subsequent venture, which we now know is a brand new Saints Row. Perhaps we’ll hear extra at Gamescom later this month. Or perhaps we can’t hear in regards to the title till subsequent 12 months. It’s exhausting to inform, however THQ Nordic confirming it to buyers does counsel it might have one thing to indicate quickly. Yet once more, THQ Nordic notes it is “deep” in growth, which suggests it might not come up for air anytime quickly.
