Saints Row developer Volition shuts down after 30 years


Saints Row developer Volition has announced they’re shutting down after three decades of game production.

The developer announced they’ve closed their doors as of today – news confirmed over on their official LinkedIn page.

Here’s the full word from Volition:

The Volition team has proudly created world-class entertainment for fans around the globe for 30 years. We’ve been driven by a passion for our community and always worked to deliver joy, surprise, and delight.

This past June, Embracer Group announced a restructuring program to strengthen Embracer and maintain its position as a leader in the video game industry. As part of that program, they evaluated strategic and operational goals and made the difficult decision to close Volition effective immediately.

To help our team, we are working to provide job asssistance and help smooth the transition for our Volition family members. We thank our customers and fans around the world for all the love and support over the years.

You will always be in our hearts.

-Volition Games
