Jim Boone, Chief Creative Officer of Volition, Saints Row Twitter account..so Extended post on Saints Row website Boone acknowledged that the team misjudged the ultimate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Saints Row’s development.

“Our priority is to create the best Saints Row game ever. If released on the original day, it doesn’t meet the standards we set and what you expect and deserve. “Boon writes. “The team needs more time to do the justice of the vision. We have made some tweaks and there are no major changes to the game other than overall quality and polish.

“To be honest, we underestimated the impact of COVID on our schedule, but everyone adapted to work at home very quickly and remained incredibly productive.

“Reassure. Over the last few years, there have been no changes to the stories, characters, etc. that we have lovingly imagined and already shared with you.

“In the last two years, every corner of the entertainment industry has been affected in some way. As gamers themselves, we know what it feels like to be late for something you were looking forward to. It’s frustrating. And you feel disappointed. But when we finally get Saints Row, we also know it was worth the wait. Doing this right is our absolute priority. It’s a matter. “
