Don’t get your hopes up, it’s not Red Faction
Volition, of Saint’s Row and Red Faction fame, will be announcing a new IP at E3 this year, going by the LinkedIn page of Jacques Hennequet, a former Creative Director with the studio. Per Hennequet’s LinkedIn, he’s “worked with a number of familiar faces, old friends really and some new ones, on an IP that will be announced at E3 2016.”
Earlier this year, publisher Deep Silver stated that that they had a major announcement to make at E3, which was initially taken to mean a possible new Saint’s Row outing. However, other resume filings citing work on a title called Agents of Mayhem, and a trademark filing for the same by Koch Media–Deep Silver’s owners–seem to lend credence to the idea that, rather than a new Saint’s Row entry, we may be looking at an entirely new Volition franchise come E3.
Of course, deep down, we’re hoping it’ll be a Red Faction announcement, but considering how badly Armageddon tanked, that’s just wishful thinking. Are you excited about Volition’s new franchise? What do you think? Let us know!
