Saints Row & Red Faction IPs Will Be Kept Alive Despite Volition's Closure

Today publisher Deep Silver took to X (formerly Twitter) to follow up on the announcement of the closure of Saints Row developer Volition.

Who knows...maybe we see a remastered SR2 after all and a new studio that makes good SR games again. Still..thanks a ton Volition for the excellent Punisher Video game

We will keep making money off of these by giving them to new teams with zero experience with them.

Not necessarily a bad thing having zero experience. Insomniac took a crack at Spider-Man and did it very well. Sucker Punch also made Ghost of Tsushima. Heck, some would say Ninja Theory did a great job with DmC.

None of those are new teams

Perhaps we're looking at "new teams" differently. I mean handing it off to a different team (one with no experience in these franchises or types of games). I don't mean a newly formed team.

But even then...a new team doesn't mean they're new to game development.

I'd also like your input on where The Initiative stands. They're new in the sense they've yet to produce any games and formed relatively recently, but comprised of industry veterans.

I'd love another Saints Row game but I can't see it happening after the response to the reboot.

I enjoyed the Saints Row reboot and i hope we see more titles in the franchise.

Reboot was trash and killed the developer.

I'm very happy to know the SR and RF franchises won't die. RF was a revolutionly fps at the time and loved the 4 og SR games.
