Saints Row has been delayed
Deep Silver and Volition have announced a delay for the upcoming reboot of Saints Row.
In a message posted to the game’s official website, Volition’s chief creative officer Jim Boone confirmed that the release date has been moved from February 25th, 2022, to August 23rd, 2022. Boone explained that the additional development time will be used for “some fine-tuning” and that “there won’t be much change in the game outside of overall quality and polish.”
“Our priority is to create the best Saints Row game yet and, if we released on the original date, it wouldn’t be up to the standards we’ve set ourselves, and that you’re expecting and deserve. The team just need more time to do our vision justice; we’re doing some fine tuning and there won’t be much change in the game outside of overall quality and polish,” he wrote.
“In all honesty, we underestimated the impact COVID would have on our schedule, although everyone adapted very quickly to the working from home arrangement and continued to be incredibly productive.”
Saints Row is now set to launch on August 23rd, 2022, for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
