Remember the Saints Row series? Those action games which took the GTA formula, turned it on its head, stole its lunch money, and smacked its face in with a giant rubber 'toy'?
Well, the series is coming back. The reboot of Saints Row was announced back in 2021, and it's looking like just as much of a chaotic treat as the previous games in the series. Charging at enemies (or randomers in the street) and hitting them with a WWE-style DDT is a memory a lot of players have yearned to relive, and the time is soon.
We've got all the information you need on the Saints Row reboot release date, as well as the latest news with regards to the game's launch and all the new news coming from Deep Silver and Volition.
Saints Row - Release Date
The Saints Row release date is August 23 2022. This comes after a delay to the game, as its original release date was back on February 25 2022. Chief Creative Officer Jim Boone issued a statement to explain the reasoning behind this.
"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."
Hopefully, things are going smoothly over there and we'll all be able to enjoy the chaos of Saints Row as soon as possible.
