New Saints Row 5

We've known since August that a new Saints Row game is in development. It's been a long, long time since the chaotic open world series last graced us with a new entry. Saints Row IV, the last full title in the franchise, launched all the way back in 2013. Since then, we've seen it remastered on PlayStation 4, and we've seen the out of touch Agents of Mayhem attempt to fill the Saints Row-shaped hole of the current console generation.

Speaking to GamesIndustry, Koch Media CEO Klemens Kundratitz reckons Agents of Mayhem's poor performance won't have an impact on the new Saints Row game, even though the same developer, Volition, is behind it. "Saints Row is Saints Row. 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," says Kundratitz.

The CEO also confirms that the new Saints Row will be revealed at some point next year: "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." We sure hope so.
