Deep Silver has confirmed that it has plans to release the next game in the open-world crime series in 2020. The company previously acknowledged plans to bring the series back with original developer Volition , which it now fully owns.
Koch Media CEO Klemens Kundratitz was asked about Dead Island 2 and Saints Row, and this is what he had to say:
“Saints Row is Saints Row,” Kundratitz said. “The two games are similar, for sure, but they’re also completely different. With Volition, we have the creators of all the Saints Row games as an internal studio and they’re not going to be distracted by anything else from creating our next game under this important franchise.
“Saints Row is very close to our hearts, and we’ll talk about it next year. For the time being, we just wanted to get the word out that it’s coming and it’s going to be great.”
The last game installment from the franchise was 2013’s Saints Row 4, which was followed up by the Gat out of Hell standalone expansion, and later Agents of Mayhem.
Furthermore, a Saints Row movie is on the way from the director of The Fate of the Furious.
