Is Volition dead now?

  1. With all due respect, after the release of Saints Row IV, followed by the release of Agents of Mayhem, I'd say the Saints Row series is pretty much toast at this point.

    So is Volition basically dead as we know it?

    You should really visit Saints Row server on Discord (https://discord.gg/ngrYqn)
    Idol Ninja says that Volition work on something new but can't share any details.
    Volition isn't dead.

  3. I don't find Saints Row IV or Agents of Mayhem disappointing, and no Volition isn't dead either.

  4. Volition is re-hiring some staff who were fired after the Agents of Mayhem debacle. They've still got some life left.

    Yes, like these two guys:

    That's Jim Boone, Studio Development Director, on the left who returned to the company in October 2017 after Agents of Mayhem was released to disappointing sales, and Josh Stinson (aka Chip Cheezum), Video Editor/Stream Czar, on the right who returned in February. Jim Boone has a long history with Volition, and anyone who watched Volition's weekly video streams will remember Josh. So things are looking up! :)

  6. I sometimes wonder if Jim Boone is related to Ed Boone, one of the creators of Mortal Kombat?

    Most of our devs have been abducted by aliens and replaced with pod people. I hear them trying to beat down my door now. Send help.

    And Volition's streams will come back. I still remember being a part of one stream (as guest with Fan of Saints). It was a such a great experience :)

  9. Jesus Christ, when you said "late" Ed Boon, I thought he fucking died.
