Saints Row is an open world adventure-action game series from the game developers Volition and was first launched back in 2006. Since its inception, the game has been really popular as an open world game with gangster elements and every latest release of the game has become a huge success despite its similarities with the Grand Theft Auto franchise. The Saints Row series games are available for both the Xbox and PlayStation gaming consoles and also supports the Windows and Linux operating systems as well.
The latest game release in the Saints Row series was the Saints Row IV or Saints Row 4. The game was released back in 2013 and it’s been 5 years since we haven’t got any update in the Saints Row game series.
Saints Row 5 Release Date
Well, as the Saints Row 4 game was released about half a decade ago, it only makes sense for Volition to release a new Saints Row 5 game, especially when we are hearing rumors about the next iteration in the Grand Theft Auto series, the GTA 6 game releasing in the upcoming years.
The developers have not released any official statements yet regarding the development of the Saints Row 5 game, therefore whatever we have heard so far about the Saints Row 5 are pure speculations.
What to Expect from Saints Row 5?
The Saints Row games, as mentioned earlier, featured similarities with the Grand Theft Auto series in its gameplay and storyline. However, with the Saints Row 4 game, the developers tried to narrow down the list of similarities that the Saints Row series had with the Grand Theft Auto series.
Despite featuring some gangster elements, the Saints Row 4 game brought in new gameplay features and a brand-new storyline wherein the playable characters in the game had superpowers as well.
As rumors about the Grand Theft Auto 6 game is also picking up, it makes sense for Volition to create the next iteration in the Saints Row game with a interesting gameplay and more importantly, an even unique storyline that can make the franchise even more differentiated from the GTA series.
Talking about the Saints Row 5 game, the open world and gangster elements will very much remain as they make the game more appealing to the fans out there.
Another key difference that we will be able to see with the upcoming Saints Row 5 game is that the PC version of the game will release quite soon after the console version. Normally, the console version of the Saints Row game releases first and then the PC version of the game is released quite later. The gap between the console and PC release of the Saints Row 5 game will be reduced so as to improve the business.
Multiplayer mode and in-game microtransactions are also expected to make it to the Saints Row 5 game when it releases.
