New Saints Row Game Will Be Revealed In 2020

We'll find out much more about the return of the Saints next year.

27 Comments

In August, we found out that a new Saints Row game is being worked on. It was revealed that a new entry in the series was "deep in development," and that it would be a full Saints Row game, not a spin-off. Since then, though, we haven't heard or seen anything else about it. Now, Koch Media CEO Klemens Kundratitz has spoken out about the next game in the series, which is in the works at series developer Volition.

Speaking with GamesIndustry.biz, Kundratitz says that Volition is being allowed to take their time and get it right. "With Volition, we have the creators of all the Saints Row games as an internal studio and they're not going to be distracted by anything else from creating our next game under this important franchise," he said. "Saints Row is very close to our hearts, and we'll talk about it next year. For the time being, we just wanted to get the word out that it's coming and it's going to be great."

The last official release in the Saints Row series was 2015's Saints Row: Gat out of Hell, a standalone expansion to the last mainline game, 2013's Saints Row 4. During this console generation, we've also seen the 2017 spin-off Agents of Mayhem, which ultimately underperformed, leading to layoffs at Volition. The rights to the series have bounced around over the years: the publisher, Deep Silver, is owned by Koch Media, which was, in turn, bought out by THQ Nordic last year. The first three Saints Row games were published by the original THQ.

The next game in the series has not been named yet, nor is it clear which consoles it will come to. Earlier this year, Saints Row: The Third released on Switch, and a spin-off film is being planned.
