Next Saints Row Headed In New Directions


Saints Row Design Director Scott Phillips of Volition recently told Gamereactor that Saints Row IV is the conclusion of this saga. Any games in the series to follow the upcoming title could “continue in a different direction.”

Phillips said:

We’re definitely considering Saints Row IV sort of the end of that saga of this character and the Saints as they are. So if there’s any more future Saints Rows–which you know we always hope there will be, we hope there’s fans for future games like that–they will probably continue in a different direction.

Saints Row IV has been hit with a bit of criticism by many looking for a more serious story, while others are still in love with the crazy antics the Saints have gotten themselves into lately. If Volition decides to move towards a more serious tale for the next game they will definitely win back some fans, but they may also lose some of the recent fans. Or it could go in a direction no one can even dream of.

Saints Row IV will be released August 20th in North America on the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
