The Saints Row release date has been pushed back by around six months, developer Volition has announced. The studio’s chief creative officer Jim Boone has posted a message announcing that the upcoming reboot – the next instalment in the long-running action-adventure games series – has been delayed from its February 2022 launch date to August 2022.
The Saints Row reboot was initially due to arrive on February 25 next year, but the delay means it’ll now drop on August 23 instead. “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,” Boone explains in the message posted to the game’s site. “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.”
Boone goes on to explain that the studio “underestimated the impact” that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic would have on the team’s schedule, though notes that they adapted to the working-from-home arrangement very quickly, and “continued to be incredibly productive”. The studio says it’s become apparent that the devs just need some more time with the new Saints Row to make it the best it can be due to the “size and scope” of the game.
