New Saints Row game release date leaked; coming to PS4, Xbox One, and more
It was during 2013, 8 years ago, the Saints Row 4 title went on sale. Since then there have been no more titles apart from the remasters. Even though it was not as successful as GTA 5, it did manage to bring the fun to the fullest. And since then nothing was said about when the development team would release the fifth installment. Well, it seems that the announcement of a new title is about to fall.
What’s more, it was already rumored that a new Saints Row would be presented at Gamescom 2021. And after the teaser that Geoff Keighley himself dropped that a new installment would be presented, things became much clearer. But the thing only stayed there, until today that more leaks have emerged about this game. They may or may not be real, but they have been widely echoed on Reddit.
So, according to reports, a few hours ago a Reddit user shared a series of leaks that came from some insiders, although he did not leave any source. Despite this, it has received many positive votes and many comments, assuming that most of the community believes in this leak.
According to those leaked information, the new Saints Row game would be a reboot, that is, a reboot of the franchise. It could be considered a remake of the first installment, although when it comes to a reboot it is because it will present many more differences than a remake.
The interesting thing is that the reboot of Saints Row will release on February 25, 2022. The title would come to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (exclusive to Epic Games Store). It is also worth mentioning that the game will be called Saints Row, simply and without number, just like the first installment.
Now, it only remains to be seen whether these rumors will be true to their nature, although now that we are so close to the announcement, it could be a real leak or so.
