Attention Saints Row fans: You should pay particular attention to the Gamescom Opening Night Live on Wednesday. Because Geoff Keighley and the Twitter account of Saints Row itself wave with the fence post that the new offshoot of the series will be unveiled there. According to indications, this could be a reboot.
The information situation around the latest offshoot of the Saints Row series has been rather poor so far. An annual report last year indicated that the title had probably been postponed to the current financial year. Accordingly, the game could still appear until March 2022. There was no more information so far, but now a revelation is within reach.
No remaster and no remake
Geoff Keighley tweeted about the Gamescom Opening Night Live next Wednesday and posted a video that shows the same graffiti wall as the Saints Row homepage. The fact that the official Twitter account of Saints Row retweeted this with a wink should suffice as an additional indication.
The developers at Saints Row also did a lot of community work and responded to numerous comments and questions. It was denied whether the new title was possibly a new edition of the first parts. It is neither a remaster nor a remake. A remake is therefore generally not planned.
When asked why this was out of the question, the bold answer was: “We’re very busy with a brand new game.” The video and the official Saints Row website are adorned with the words “Rebooting”, which makes a reboot of the series more than likely. But they don’t want to answer the direct question about a reboot, ask for a little more patience. A fan’s question about a co-op story mode got a similar answer.
Saints Row fans should mark Wednesday August 25th in their calendar and tune in to the Opening Night Live.
