Just three months after its original reveal, Volition‘s Saints Row reboot has now been delayed.

In a new statement published on the game’s official website, Volition chief creative officer Jim Boone announced that the reboot’s release will now be pushed back by six months from February of 2022 to August. “Our priority is to create the best Saints Row game yet and, if we released on the original date, it wouldn’t be up to the standards we’ve set ourselves, and that you’re expecting and deserve. The team just need more time to do our vision justice,” the executive wrote.

“In all honesty, we underestimated the impact COVID would have on our schedule, although everyone adapted very quickly to the working from home arrangement and continued to be incredibly productive. However, due to the size and scope of our new Saints Row, it’s become apparent that to create the best game possible, we need to give our team longer to perfect their craft.”

For fans of the original franchise, the upcoming Saints Row reboot will now arrive on August 23, 2022.

Elsewhere in gaming, Back 4 Blood developers have finally acknowledged that the game is too difficult.
