Saints Row First Major Update Will Focus on Fixes Instead of New Content

Saints Row’s First Major Update Will Focus on Bug Fixes

The Saints Row reboot unfortunately did not make as much of a splash as Volition and Deep Silver had hoped. Embracer Group CEO Lars Wingefors revealed last month that he had actually “hoped for a greater reception of the game” when it came out. However, he is feeling positive about the long-term future of the series.

We are supporting Saints Row for the long term,” devs wrote. “While we would have preferred to be talking about road maps and expansions, right now we feel the focus must be on telling you how we are going to improve the Saints Row experience for all players in 2022 and beyond.”

This indicates that the team behind the game decided on placing more focus on improving the base game. “Delivering new content has become less of a priority for now,” they continued. “Right now our development priority is delivering improvements over new features.”

With that said, next month’s Saints Row update will “pack in as many improvements and fixes” as possible. Apparently, the update will have more than 200 bug fixes and stability upgrades. According to multiple reports, it will reportedly zone in on “challenges, overall stability, and co-op.”

Devs apologized to the gaming public for the delayed co-op fixes. The game’s following is well aware that these fixes took much longer than they expected. In addition to bug fixes, devs also want fans to know that the upcoming update will provide players with more information on “how and when co-op is possible.”

“2023 will be a hugely exciting year for Saints Row owners with a raft of content including all-new story content and free new gameplay experiences and areas of the city to explore,” devs added.
