In what has become a familiar phenomenon in the game development world (and indeed, technology in general), Volition has announced that the Saints Row reboot will miss its original start date.
The company's priority is to create the best Saints Row game, said Jim Boone, Volition's chief creative officer, and if it comes out on February 25, 2022, it won't survive. According to the standards they set for themselves. Simply put, the development team needs more time to fine-tune the game to improve its overall quality and smoothness. p>
So what went wrong? Boone explained that the team underestimated the impact of Covid-19 on their schedule, despite the fact that everyone can adapt quickly to working from home. p>
Volition launched its new project in August during a Gamescom announcement. But this game is not what some fans of the franchise are hoping for. Instead of continuing the narrative that was told up until then, Volition decided to create an entirely new game with unfamiliar characters and a different overall look. p>
So far, the trailer for the game has reached 70,000. Hate - more than double the number of likes.
Despite the criticism, Volition said at the time that he wouldn't back down from the game. Boone reiterated this sentiment in his last message, stating that there will be no change in the story or the characters they have imagined over the past few years. p>
A new Saints class is now planned. Xbox One, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC will be available on August 23, 2022.
Saints Row restart postponed for six months
