Saints Row’s recipe for action, crime, and humor remains a strong and relevant concept; a game that existing fans and new players will embrace and developer Deep Silver Volition is back at the helm of the game they love.
“This full reboot is the most fun and exciting we’ve included in a Saints Row experience to date,” said Jim Boone, Volition’s creative director. “The iconic new location provides many exciting opportunities to delight players, whether they are long-time fans of the series or joining for the first time.”
Saints Row is one of the most beloved and celebrated series of games and this is the reboot most of us have been waiting for,” added Paul Nicholls, Deep Silver’s director of global marketing and brand. “We are very excited about Volition’s bold new vision, and we can’t wait to get this new Saints Row into the hands of players in 2022.”
Saints Row takes place in Santo Ileso, a vibrant fictional city in the heart of the American Southwest. In a world riddled with crime, where lawless factions battle for power, a group of young friends embark on their own criminal adventure, as they rise to the top in their quest to become Self Made.
Saints Row will be released on Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, and on the Epic Games Store for PC. Players can pre-order the game through the Microsoft Store, PlayStation Store, and Epic Games Store, and all participating stores. As expected, release date was not announced.
