Saints Row Dev Will Reveal New Game On Friday -- Is It Saints Row 5?
Volition to show off gameplay, art, and other details for "an upcoming project" at PAX Prime.
Saints Row creator Volition will reveal its next game on Friday during a PAX Prime panel, according to a posting for the presentation on the event's official website. The announcement will be made during a panel called "Quiz Show Hour with Volition - Project Reveal & Prizes," which will be held August 29 at 10 AM in the Sandworm Theatre.
"At the end of the panel, we'll show you exclusive gameplay, art, and details for an upcoming project from Volition," reads the official description. Panelists for the event include Deep Silver brand director Aubrey Norris, and Volition key staff, including creative director Steve Jaros and producer Jim Boone.
Volition's most recent project was 2013's Saints Row IV. The Saints Row series was first published by THQ, but after the company went bankrupt, German entertainment giant Koch Media purchased Volition--rebranding it Deep Silver Volition--and acquired the Saints Row series. The company paid $22.3 million for the studio and the franchise.
Earlier this year, actor-comedian Jay Mohr tweeted that he was doing voice work for a new Saints Row project, leading to a thought that he might be involved in a potential Saints Row V in some way.
PAX Prime kicks off Friday and runs through Monday, September 1 (Labor Day in the United States). GameSpot will be on the ground at the show bringing you news as it happens. For more on PAX Prime, check out GameSpot's hub dedicated to the show.
