Saints Row Reboot was first scheduled to release on February 25, 2022. Not long ago, the developer Volition has decided to delay its release until August 23, 2022. This information comes from Saints Row official website, where Jim Boone the chief creative officer at Volition, said the following:
“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. 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.
In all honesty, we underestimated the impact COVID would have on our schedule, although everyone adapted very quickly to the working from home arrangement and continued to be incredibly productive.
However, due to the size and scope of our new Saints Row, it’s become apparent that to create the best game possible, we need to give our team longer to perfect their craft.”
If you’re scared that this might impact the game more than you think of, worry not. As per the official website update, it seems like all of its features will remain the same except for some slight changes. The post clarifies that there will be no significant changes to the game – only minor tweaks here and there for an even better experience.
