Saints Row's Stupidity Will Almost Certainly Return on PS4

Posted by Sammy Barker

Loud and proud

Since the success of Saints Row IV on the PlayStation 3, developer Volition has been a little secretive. There were rumours coming out of E3 2014 that publisher Deep Silver was about to announce a new entry in the stupid sandbox series, but that turned out to be the equally ridiculous Dead Island 2. Alas, the aforementioned outfit hasn’t spent the past year or so twiddling its thumbs – and as such, Steelport could very much be making a comeback soon.

Games Industry International reports that the firm has announced plans to boost its workforce by approximately 100 people, meaning that its total staff size by the end of recruitment will rest at an eye-watering 300 employees. The developer’s also planning to renovate its Champaign, Illinois headquarters, and has requested assistance from the government to do so.

Now, we’re certainly not employment aficionados, but if a company’s willing to put its human resources department through the kind of headache outlined above, then we reckon that it must have something pretty big planned. And with the next Grand Theft Auto likely to be some way away, what could possibly be bigger than a brand that takes everything that’s good about a Rockstar game – and sprinkles superpowers on top? Exactly.

I like the series so fine by me. Hopefully 5 will be a little more inspired than IV though. I want it to go back to more of the gang roots from 1 and 2. The second is still easily the best in the series and one of the best open world games last gen.

I get the feeling Sammy isn't a Deep Silver fan. :)

I actually really liked Saints Row IV. It was like playing Infamous in the Saints Row universe.

Third and fourth games were two of my favourite experiences on PS3. I'd happily have Saints Row on PS4, but it'll have to be freshened up a little bit.

I thought SR:The third was pretty good, it was whacky, which is what I like sometimes. I didn't play the 4th one but if they come out with one for the PS4, I will get it.

I wish they'd just let the series die now. 1 & 2 were fun alternatives to other open world games, but 3 & 4 were just bobbins. Its like they forgot what made the series good in the first place..

I really hope they make another Saints Row game. I love what I've played of SR2 so far, and I enjoyed the youtube videos for the first SR game (dont have a X360 yet).
