Saints Row V confirmed, to release by 2021

THQ Nordic confirms a new Saints Row game is in development at Volition

Volition is officially working on a new mainline Saints Row game, and it should release by 2021, THQ Nordic confirms.

Saints Row V confirmed, to release by 2021 |

We've long-suspected Saints Row V was in development. Volition Entertainment has been pretty quiet since its Agents of Mayhem game failed, and a bit ago THQ Nordic said the studio was working on a "top-secret AAA project." Now the publisher outright says that yes, Volition's new game is a Saints Row sequel. "Volition is deep in development of a brand-new Saints Row game, the first full entry in this much loved series since Saints Row IV was released in 2013," THQ Nordic's Lars Wingefors said in a recent earnings report.

No exact details were revealed, but we did get a nebulous timeframe. THQ Nordic expects to ship two major AAA games in the fiscal year from April 1, 2020 through March 31, 2021, and Saints Row V is assuredly one of them. So that puts Saints Row V firmly in next-gen console territory and we should see a reveal at E3 2020 or thereabouts, probably on Microsoft's press conference (since Sony has dipped out of the show).

Expect to see the same insane high-octane humor, inside jokes, and established franchise characters return for explosive antics on PlayStation 5 and Microsoft's next-gen Project Scarlett console.

We also expect the sequel to release around the same timeframe as the upcoming Saints Row movie adaptation.
