“We are ‘Bossing’ it with our announcements this year,” Keighley wrote in a tweet that teased the impending announcement of a new Saints Row game during his Opening Night Live show that is due to kick off Gamescom 2021.
Alongside a reminder that the event starts at “11 am PT / 2 pm ET / 7 pm BST / 8 pm CEST,” Keighley attached a video showing the Saints Row franchise logo, as well as the text “rebooting.”
You don’t have to be a games journalist to work out that this means that a Saints Row reboot will be on the way, but the real question is which direction will they take the series in. Will we be getting a remastered carbon copy of Saints Row 1 or 2? Or will we be getting a wackier new instalment which is a true ground-up reboot? We’ll just have to wait and see.
