The rumors were right. Today, Saints Row developer Volition announced its next game, and as rumored, it's called Agents of Mayhem.

According to the announcement story on IGN, Agents of Mayhem is set in an open-world urban landscape (Seoul, Korea). The tone has a "touch of the whimsical." All of this matches up with the core tenets of the developer's over-the-top and silly Saints Row series.
