Gamescom: Saints Row Reboot Teased
Saints Row is a series that started life as Grand Theft Auto but was characterized by a humorous edge. It eventually descended into bad and good times. The third-street Saints had become a superpowered force that could travel through time and was unstoppable by the end of the fourth installment. It is impossible to imagine a hypothetical Saints Row could have picked up, so it was not surprising that there were fundamental questions when Volition confirmed their game on August 2019 via Twitter.
It appears that the next Saints Row title will be a reboot. This announcement will be made at the Gamescom opening night. Geoff Keighley (the host of the show) and the Saints Row twitter account teased the appearance, but not subtly.
Some people dislike the Saints Row series and feel it should return to the more grounded Saints Row2 for any future games. It’s a valid opinion. This is a valid opinion, but one that I’m afraid I have to disagree with. It seems like the series was only interesting after Saints Row 3. While I agree that it may have been too spiritual, another Saints Row 2 is unnecessary.
The world will likely get one because there is no other place to go after Saints Row.
