On the flip side, the official website of the game only portrays one word ‘Rebooting’. This could bring forward more reboots of legacy titles as the studio has already remastered the third edition of the game. This leaves room for other titles to receive the same treatment along with an upgrade for the next-gen consoles. Fans have been clamoring for the first two games to be remastered and the studio might finally answer that call.

Moreover, rumors from within the industry suggest a brand new game could also be revealed. The franchise last saw a mega-successful expansion for Saints Row IV in Gat Out of Hell. This served as the last massive DLC content, after which things went quiet. Fans have been eagerly waiting for more announcements, but nothing was revealed. However, it is also possible that the upcoming title might reboot the entire franchise as things have become quite complicated for everyone.
