Saints Row IV confirmed in debut trailer
Since shortly after the release of Saints Row: The Third, it’s been common knowledge that Volition, Inc. has been working on the next game in the unashamedly irreverent action/adventure series. That game has now been officially announced as Saints Row IV in the slightly bonkers debut trailer.
Following the recent liquidation of THQ, both Volition, Inc. and the Saints Row IP were purchased by German media enterprise Koch Media. Consequently its videogame division, British company Deep Silver, will now be publishing Saints Row IV.
Any worries you may have had that Deep Silver would ask Volition to dial down the crazy should be well and truly dispelled by the above trailer. Sure, it looks an awful lot like Saints Row: The Third with superpowers, but that still sounds awesome to us!
Also revealed in the trailer is the game’s all-important release date; 20th August in North America and 23rd August in Europe. That means Saints Row IV will be arriving just a few weeks ahead of Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V. Coincidence? We doubt it.
