SPOILERS Saints Row (2022) official info

This might just be me getting on in years, but after trying out the Brighter Future update I think there's actually *too much* side-stuff, like to an exhausting point, though this is more of a general open world knock than SR5 specifically, just feeling tired when it comes to grindy-feeling progression.
So much for Co-op being fixed. 4 attempts to play Co-op and all were met with game breaking bugs. What a nightmare.
Is modding impossible this time?
As has already been stated, people are waiting for the modding tools.

SR2022 seems to have been a disaster when it comes to sales, so we'll see if they ever bother making modding tools at all. They may just want to focus on another game that isn't a financial failure, after patching SR2022 into actually working properly.
Releasing the game on Steam + releasing modding tools can boost sales (it boosted SR4's after the workshop update) ngl
