Saints Row Reboot Coming 2022

During Gamescom Opening Night Live today, publisher Deep Silver and developer Volition announced that they are working on a new Saints Row game. Titled Saints Row, the new game will act as a reboot to the video game franchise that went from gritty street drama to global alien invasion. An announcement trailer was released that teases the craziness of the game as well as the released date.

Release Date

Fans have been waiting for a new Saints Row, but they will have to wait a little bit longer until February 24, 2022. The reboot game will be available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5, and on Epic Games Store for PC.

Announce Trailer

The CGI announcement trailer features the craziness of the game, which captures the spirit of the third and fourth Saints Row games. Those who wished the game returned to their roots of the first and second games will be sorely disappointed. Saints Row will still be dealing with the criminal world as you become a self-made crime boss with the goal of taking over the city.

Saints Row Will Be a Full Reboot

“This full reboot is the most fun and exhilaration we’ve packed into a Saints Row experience to date,” said Jim Boone, Chief Creative Officer at Volition. “The iconic new location brings so many exciting opportunities to delight players – whether they are long time fans of the series or jumping in for the first time.”

“Saints Row is one of the most loved and celebrated gaming series and this is the reboot we’ve all been waiting for,” added Paul Nicholls, Global Brand & Marketing Director at Deep Silver. “We’re very excited by Volition’s bold new vision, and we can’t wait to get this new Saints Row into players hands in 2022.”
