Saints Row Reboot: What is the release date?

The world of reveal of Saints Row attracted a hugely negative reaction from fans of the series.

The Saints Row reboot has been announced but it will have a lot of work to do to deter the disgruntled segments of the gaming community.

At the time of writing, the official announce trailer on YouTube has 56,000 dislikes and only 25,000 likes – which is mainly down to the removal of the original characters from the earlier games such as Julius Little, Troy, Johnny Gat, Dex and Lin.

We have not seen a new addition to the iconic series since 2013 and was renowned for its general wackiness and tomfoolery, purple clothing and the mentality that the gang possessed.

Instead, the all-new Saints Row appears to be aimed towards children with all-new characters, as we wave goodbye to the famous Third Street Saints.

While gamers may be upset for now, their minds could change on launch day and they will still be curious in relation to when Saints Row will be available to purchase

Saints Row Reboot Release Date

The all-new Saints Row will be released on 23rd August 2022 and will be the start of a new era for the franchise.

February 2022 was initially the chosen date for the Saints Row Reboot to be released but sadly the game has been put back six months.

The developers wrote the following on their official website:

“Saints Row will no longer release on the originally announced date of 25th February 2022, instead, it will launch worldwide on 23rd August 2022.

“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; we’re doing some fine tuning and there won’t be much change in the game outside of overall quality and polish.

“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.

“As mentioned when we announced Saints Row in August, this will be the biggest and best Saints Row game ever and, in order to achieve our goal, we’ve settled upon a generous, yet essential amount of time to realise our ambitions.”
