For a game that was tagged as a copycat in its early life, Saints Row has done quite well for itself. Developed by the gaming company Volition, it was initially released in 2006. Back then, it was criticized as a cheap Grand Theft Auto knockoff. However, it has proved itself to be so much more.
One feature that worked best for Volition when creating its various games is adopting an open world system for its various projects. This means that developers working on different games like Red Faction and Agents of Mayhem can collaborate on material that would appear in the Saints Row franchise. Existing in this shared universe has allowed this sandbox game to be break boundaries in terms of of the quests and activities that it can offer players.
With Saints Row 5 in development since 2015, we can hopefully have a trailer anywhere this year or in the early part of next year.
TheLeaker has published a compilation of features that gamers would like to see on Saints Row’s fifth installment.
