What Will Happen to the Saints Row Franchise?

GamerFitNation: Now that THQ Inc. has sold off all of its properties, what is going to happen to the franchise that we love the most, Saints Row? The developing studios will most likely be kept relatively intact, but as with most changes in ownership, some people are going to lose their jobs, so how is that going to affect the games that are created? And it’s not going to be just Saints Row we have to worry about, but the smaller series that were sold as well. Even though the entire studio was sold, new ownership can change things around, and we as gamers can only hope that the studios will be allowed to do what they do best. (Darksiders 2, Metro 2033: Last Light, PC, PS3, Saints Row: The Third, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Its Take-two.

Take Two will publish, the same devs who make all those 2K sports games will develop the game, so really it's unknown at this point. Given how much the industry has reached out to the people at THQ, it's likely some of the people working on the last THQ WWE games will wind up working on the team that makes the next WWE game for 2K games given all of their experience with making specifically wrestling games year after year, it wouldn't surprise me if EA picked a bunch of them up.

Who cares? THQ and Volition butchered Saints Row: The Third to the point where they made an April Fools joke about DLC, then said it was true, then said it would be DLC for SR: The Third, then decided that it will be a standalone title THEN decided it will be apart of the next Saints Row game.

Give us Saints Row 2 with some of the new additions to Saints Row: The Third, including the online multiplayer and you will win back this Saints Row fanboy.

Nothing will happen to it. It will continue as planned. The people at Deep Silver have also said that they will get to continue to be themselves. I think they are in good hands.

Saints Row 4 will be awesome, then Koch will attempt to milk the franchise to death. Probably use it as a launching ground to try and become a major publisher.

Hasn't it already been milked? I know, 3 games is nothing compared to other video game franchises and reboots, but Saints Row: The Third is a great example of milking.

Have you seen the number of add-ons that game had and how pointless the majority of them were?

A bunch of pointless costume DLC isn't the same thing as milking a franchise. I'd rather see a bunch of garbage DLC that I have no interest in wasting money on than yearly rehashes that burn me out in no time.
aglot89  +   845d ago
@-MD- Garbage DLC = production costs. Guess what happened to THQ? They went bankrupt. Put two and two together and you can paint a picture as to one of the many ways how THQ buried themselves into debt.

Also, define "yearly rehashes that burn me out in no time." because it sounds to me like you are buying these games year after year, but also complaining about them releasing games year after year.

Instead of spending time and money on costume add-ons, they could spend that time and money on things to improve their game and look at possibilities for the next installment.
