I also doubt whether they even have the budget to deliver production values that the main stream will accept.
I hope for the best!

As long as they keep their sense of humour and don't try to pander them I'll be in day one.

Absolutely not. And it probably wouldn't be that great. 4 was fun but I'm not sure where they could go next. Maybe full on Mass Effect, which was the direction they were going anyway. Actually I'd love that.

In this woke culture? They have nothing to joke about that won't offend someone but on the other hand THQN doesnt care about that shit as seen from the remaster of Destroy All Humans and how they didnt censor any of the jokes/references.

Why not wait. This fall is already quite packed anyway. But on the other hand... more SR is never a bad thing.

You're getting worked up over imaginary complaints about a game that doesn't exist bro

You're not making any sense. The discussion is about a game that does not exist so naturally I'm talking about a game that does not exist. As for "imaginary complaints" I'm just going to assume you're new to the internet or blind to the woke culture that is especially present in gaming journalists. Let me give you an example my naive child


Now imagine a new Saints Row game with the same stupid jokes and humor we loved about the classic series in this current climate.

They just remastered SR3 and released it intact a couple of months ago. I agree you are overreacting to your own imagined scenario.

If you presented your concern without insulting people, you may find them more willing to listen to your case.

Not the same tho. Destroy All Humans was also remastered and there were complaints about the jokes. It's not set in stone naturally and remastering something that already exists gets ignored mostly, but it's a good reason why they probably won't bother making a new one. What are they going to joke about?

You're still just getting angry at imaginary things

The original Saints Row released 14 years ago today. I would also like the series to abandon the newer silly, over-the-top stuff and go back to its gang crime roots. That said, they could reboot the series with Saints Row V or remake the original for its 15th anniversary. I'd love to see Stilwater again and original characters like Dex with newer, updated graphics.

STORY SETUP

  • Continuation of Saints Row 3's plot. Saints Row 4 and Gat Out of Hell got retconned as a crazy in-universe TV show.
  • The plot is about how the Saints become an evil corporate empire similar to Ultor. You are playing as a new protagonist with a new cast to support you as you go against the old Saints cast. Main antagonists are old Saints, but also other gangs. One of them was a motorcycle gang called the Wolf pack. There are some story related choices you can make. For example, you can ally with a gang to go against the Saints.
  • All the old Saints are there except Gat who is kept dead, which is mentioned as part of the reason why the Saints became soulless corporate bullies.
  • The old boss (player character from previous games) now wears a cool looking mask that makes their voice muffled and tactical body armor, so their look is open to interpretation.
  • The game is set in modern Stilwater (the OG city from 1 & 2), but it's been massively expanded. It has way more countryside and new islands.
  • Tone is a middle ground between 1, 2 and 3.
  • There are no superpowers.
  • Game has a thing going on where it feels like you're seeing the old Saints from the perspective of an average NPC. Extreme versions of their SR3 selves basically. Old Saints never cared about hurting innocent people which pays a big role in building the Saints as this evil gang.

GAMEPLAY

  • Character customization is similar to Saints Row 2
  • You can wear clothing pieces in multiple ways.
  • Sliders are there for each body part this time, so you can go all the way in creating weird monstrosities.
  • Dick censorship is changed and this time, it's a black bar that has swinging physics (note from me: Volition actually wanted to do this with SR3 but couldn't because of coding issues and time constraints. Nice to see the real next-gen addition make its way in.)
  • Weapon customization isn't linear anymore like it was in Saints Row 4. You can put on different scopes and camos and switch between ammo types.
  • 4 Player co-op, with difficulty scaling to number of players.
  • Multiplayer will be 32 player freeroam gang warfare with activities like Deathmatch activating dynamically in the world. So you can drive around the map and then get a pop up from the game that invites you and the rest of the players to participate in Deathmatch. If your gang wins Deathmatch, you'll gain small territory as part of a bigger region in this particular lobby. This won't be global, so each lobby will have different territories controlled by different gangs.
  • No destructable environments but physics felt a lot better. For example, ragdolls weren't floaty anymore like in Saints Row 4 and driving felt close to GTA V.
GRAPHICS

  • It's like Saints Row 3 Remastered, but better. Not cartoony at all. No destructable environemnts but physics felt a lot better. For example, ragdolls weren't floaty anymore like in Saints Row 4 and driving felt close to GTA V.
MISC

  • In a playable early state, Volition have invited tons of people from the Saints Row community and some YouTube influencers to check it out who are all under NDA.
  • They might show some trailers this year, but it's coming out in late 2021, or even 2022.

That sounds like all the right choices , cautiously optimistic. I'd guess this would be a big end of 2021 game
