Thats really a shame. I get they wanted to do something new and I don't dislike Agents of Mayhem. But they should have done another Saints Row game first. Or they should have put Saints Row in the title of Agents of Mayhem. That would have ensured sales for the game was much better. I hope the core team stays in place and these talented developers can make the next Saints Row. They are a great team.

That’s too bad
I’m still playing AoM
I thought it was pretty damn good
Hopefully we’ll see a SR5 soon

Yeah I'm loving AOM and using Johhny Gat a lot in it. So much like Crackdown imo.

Wonder what they can do with sr5, a reboot or just go with them going through time.

I dont think they get that theres an appetite for open world classic gangster games outside of GTA.

The mob be street or organized storylines go hand in hand with open world games, theres no need for all this over the top crap, to makea game engaging. Sometimes less is better.


This is typical in the industry after a game is complete. Nothing to see here. I did buy AoM and love it so I support the studio.
