Currently “deep in development”, it will be a “full entry” to the series.
In its Q1 FY2019 report for the year ending June 31st 2019, THQ Nordic offered some very interesting announcement. Perhaps the most important is that Volition is developing a new Saints Row title. Unlike the spin-off Agents of Mayhem, this is a “full entry” that’s currently “deep in development.”
When it will be released, what it’s called, which platforms it’s coming to and other such details have yet to be revealed. It also remains to be seen where the story could go. Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell effectively retconned the destruction of the Earth in Saints Row 4, which led to Agents of Mayhem. Will the new Saints Row simply take place in the same universe?
Will the series also stick with the super-powers that the fourth game introduced or go back to a more traditional albeit zany open world like Saints Row The Third? Time will tell but for the most part, the Saints are back in business. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
