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.

DarXyde228d ago (Edited 228d ago )

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

DarXyde228d ago


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.

Battlestar23229d ago

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.

Diablo 4 storefront being a cash grabbing shitshow does unironically attest to that, kudos.

Okay i will be interested if they become old Blizzard but might as well be dead.

They will never be old blizzard. Most of all the OG's left from developers to those on the top (even some decision making folks left).

Shame most of the people that made Blizzard what they were, have already left a while ago.

ApocalypseShadow15h ago

I was about to say this. How can they be blizzard when they're no longer blizzard from yesteryear?

Rare was the thing I lost heart

Exactly. Blizzard hasn’t been Blizzard for a long time.
Oh how the mighty have fallen.

Blizzard is not the same Blizzard like it use to be.

Were you expecting Microsoft to hire everyone that had left Blizzard long before they purchased the company...

Microsoft has let the Blizzard company they purchased continue to be the Blizzard company they purchased.
