There's always a catch with these things.

As expected, a new Saints Row game was announced today during Gamescom Opening Night Live. Let's just address the elephant in the room: Saints Row is exclusive to the Epic Games Store on PC. It may come to other stores in the future, but there's literally no confirmation yet about that. Saints Row will also be released for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.

The release date is set for February 25, 2022.

As expected, Saints Row (or SAINTS ROW as they're stylizing it) will be a reboot for the entire franchise. A CG trailer was shown off during today's presentation and while it is far more down to Earth than the later entries in the series, it still seems to contain just enough absurdity to separate it from the other open world titles out there.
