This summer, as we are accustomed to this time of year, has been one with very few releases, where the attention of the industry has focused, of course, on the many events that we have had, being able to see first-hand titles that will arrive in the future. These summer months are always very poor in terms of releases, but this year, we have been able to see that Volition, with its new Saints Row, has dared to launch it right at the end of August, and according to the results we have seen… It wasn’t a good idea to release it so soon. The problem comes when we know that the critical and commercial response to Saints Row has been highly polarized, according to the CEO of Embracer Group.
At the Embracer Group’s annual general meeting, CEO Lars Wingefors has stated (via VGC) that are disappointed with the way the new Saints Row has workedclaiming that they expected a better reception, but that on the one hand, seeing many fans happy with the game encourages them to continue forward, but not so much seeing a lot of other fans disgusted with Volition’s work.

Wingefors assures that even with all this polarization, they will have guaranteed profits, and Embracer continues to trust Volition for the future of the franchise, so the adventures of the Saints still have a long way to go. It is a pity that a installment of such a well-known saga has passed without pain or glory, due to bugs that the developer could have designed differently. Let’s hope that in the future, a possible continuation can reach the quality levels that, for example, Saints Row: The Third achieved.
