The developer of Saints Row is closing it doors this week.
Kind of sucks, but to be understood. I feel bad for the talent there who fall due to the decisions of the few and not because they aren't good at what they do.Hope those who deserve it land safely with other teams.
...and as a parting hooray, they are letting Sony give their game away on PS+.
They also made them port it to Steam (was Epic only) so Embracer can rake in money from that over the years.
I would pay extra to not have it in my library.
Quite the shame. I really enjoyed the Saints Row games prior to Agent of Mayhem.
It was a shell since most of the original developers left years ago. They haven't made a good game in 10 years imo. It still sucks though. R.I.P.
I agree. New people screwed it up, shame to lose this franchise. Well for now at least. I wonder if anybody else will take the series on
Scary thought when you consider R* is not really R* anymore either.
@DarXyde Let's face reality and accept the facts, because it's irrelevant that Leslie Benzies and Dan Houser left rockstar games, because Leslie Benzies left rockstar games in (2016) and it made no difference to GTA Online updates or GTA Online gameplay and Dan Houser left rockstar games in (2020), and Dan Houser ONLY wrote the GTA Story for GTA Single Player, and Dan Houser wasn't a programmer or gameplay designer lol. Leslie Benzies (Producer) leaving rockstar games in (2016) and Dan Houser (GTA Single Player Story Writer) leaving rockstar games in (2020) isn't going to affect GTA 6 gameplay or GTA 6 Online Multiplayer, because they aren't programmers and they don't create the gameplay design, the GTA world, GTA Online, etc. if GTA 6 Single Player Story Mode is worse than GTA 5's, who cares ?, because most people will only be playing GTA 6 Online Multiplayer after they have finished GTA 6 Single Player Story Mode anyway, because GTA Single Player Story Mode / Free Roam can only entertain most people for so long, until it becomes boring and repetitive. There are still millions of people playing GTA Online to this day, and there is probably a lot more people playing GTA Online than GTA 5 Single Player. Have you seen the trash games that Leslie Benzies and Dan Houser are working on ?, Leslie Benzies is working on a trash game called "Everywhere", and Dan Houser invested in a blockchain games company called "Revolving Games", Leslie Benzies and Dan Houser have seriously embarrassed themselves lol. Here's the video trailer for Leslie Benzies boring and uninteresting looking game called "Everywhere", and here's the article link about Dan Houser investing in a blockchain games company called "Revolving Games", this is beyond embarrassing for Leslie Benzies and Dan Houser lol.

It's a shame for people to loose their jobs but these guys did make fun of gamers for pointing out how bad this looked rather than taking criticism on board. What the hell were these guys thinking They didn't just ruin their studio they literally tanked a franchise.
unfortunate, but I think the writing was on the wall after the disastrous reboot.
The writing was all over Agent of Mayhem. Saint's Row was the nail in the coffin.
The Embracer Group stated it would be closing studios and canceling games. Due to how bloated Embracer Group is and it’s rather low revenue relative to its size, several more of its studios in addition to Volition will be closed.
Shame to hear bc this was one of my favorite games series
No wonder why it’s a PS Plus game - Sony probably got it for cheap
Hopefully enough to pay one last compensation to those who gonna lose their jobs
The severance checks are covered by landing it on PS+
Maybe the few at the top but do you really think the average guy who is losing his job would see anything? I doubt it ... but what do I know?
Hurts because I was still waiting for Volition to redeem themselves one last time
I was more annoyed they didn't want you to create a feminine busty female character and instead let you play as a toilet. That was just one example of their decision making. Edit: There is also the crap gameplay that needed more time as well.
bad decisions, I mean bad decisions
Should have listened to fans of the series and not cater to the woke mob. And most of this is Embracer's fault buying up studios left right and center without thinking of the future.
When it was first shown in the trailer I knew it was going to be trouble. Oh no... The fans wanted a saints row 1 and 2 remake or Port. Not the trash they did recently. This is the result.
Volition joined the club of boycotts along with Bud Light, Target, and Bed Bath and Beyond. They should have just put Mr. Mulvaney on the front of the box.
I saw a car crash and it just looked floaty… You gotta be capable of competing if you’re gonna try to charge $60+ for a game. Striking Distance struggled in the market too, and they got a veteran like Glen Schofield leading them. It’s not an easy market to break into. I don’t even think Returnal has sold a million copies yet, and that game is fantastic.
This is what can happen when a developer decides that pandering is more important than making a quality game. Quality Saints Row game = Not much political correctness Not a quality Saints Row game = A lot of political correctness
