Koch Media CEO Klemens Kundratitz in an interview with GamesIndustry revealed the next game in the Saints Row franchise will officially be announced in 2020. 

Saints Row IV, the last to release in the franchise, launched in 2013.

"Saints Row is Saints Row," said Kundratitz. "The two games are similar, for sure, but they're also completely different. With Volition, we have the creators of all the Saints Row games as an internal studio and they're not going to be distracted by anything else from creating our next game under this important franchise.

"Saints Row is very close to our hearts, and we'll talk about it next year. For the time being, we just wanted to get the word out that it's coming and it's going to be great."

I enjoyed SR2 on the 360. Liked it, but didn't love it. Took a chance on SR3 on the PS3, and liked it A LOT. Maybe even .....Loved. A couple missions completely glithed-out on me however. I have SR4 Complete edition on PS4, but haven't played it yet. Anyways, I'm a fan, so this is pleasant news.

The only Saints Row I truly loved was the original. It was my first “next gen” GTA-like game after San Andreas on the PS2. I was blown away by the graphics and ragdoll physics for an open world game. It was also my first online multiplayer game, so I have fond memories there. Protect Tha Pimp, anyone? Blinged Out Ride? Saints Row 2 was also good, but it came on the heels of GTA IV, which was so strikingly superior in everything from graphics and physics to dialogue and storytelling. Volition just could not compete after GTA properly came into the new gen. That's why I'm glad they went a different route with 3 and 4. They gave the series its own unique identity, although they may have jumped the shark a bit with IV. Where do you go from there? It pretty much became Crackdown, jumping over buildings and whatnot. I'll definitely be interested to see where they go with the next one.

Well, I liked it more than GTA then and I'll probably like it more now. For me, it just controls better. It's actually one of the better feels out there for those games.

Is it just me or does that press release feel kinda cringe worthy?

Hoping the next one is more like SR3 than SR4. I don't really want a super hero game.

I really hope they don't ruin it by going back to the more serious tone of the earlier games. SR4 is one of my favorite games of all time simply because of how crazy, hilarious, and fun it is.

Barkley (on 20 November 2019)

Sillyness is basically the Saints Row brand now, there's no way they'll go back. I hope it's more like the gangs and guns of SR3 than the super powers of SR4 though.

While SR4 was some crazy fun I do wish the next game is a tad bit more grounded. Agents of Mayhem was somewhat of a reboot, but considering how much that flopped I think they'll ignore it.
