'Bright future' promised for Saints Row, Metro by new owner
Deep Silver parent company Koch Media "really excited" to lead franchises into the future; plans to share plans for each series in coming months.
Deep Silver parent company Koch Media has promised a "bright future" for the Saints Row and Metro franchises, which it acquired yesterday as part of the THQ bankruptcy auction. The company also purchased Saints Row developer Volition Inc.
"Both the Saints Row and the Metro franchises perfectly fit into our future lineup and strategy," Deep Silver international commercial director Menno van der Bil said in a statement. "We're really excited to lead these well-respected licenses into a bright new future."
Future plans for the Saints Row and Metro franchises will be announced in the coming months, the company said. Saints Row 4 is currently in development at Volition, and Metro: Last Light is due for release later this year.
In total, Koch Media spent over $28 million to acquire the Saints Row and Metro franchises and the Champaign, Illinois-based Volition. No other bidding party spent more during yesterday's auction.
Saints Row and Metro add to Deep Silver's existing stable of franchises, which include Dead Island, Risen, Nail'd, and Sacred.
