The Embracer Group has revealed that Volition’s reboot of the Saints Row franchise did not meet its expectations and that the studio “left the fanbase partially polarized”. As such the studio has been moved to the Gearbox Entertainment Company where it will be guided by management to help bring future success to Volition. The Embracer Group has however stated that Saints Row is selling within its expectations for the quarter.

Volition previously responded to criticism of the game by stating that they would “not back down” and that the initial reaction was a “knee-jerk” kind. The studio also went on to call fans of the franchise “haters” for saying anything negative about the reboot which pretty much threw out everything that the franchise stood for. Volition also claims that the game is the most “fun and exfiltrating” experience in the franchise.
