"I hope Deep Silver can do as badass a job as Volition did with this series...really really hope it is awesome!" "It'll be interesting to see how Saint's Row performs without THQ and Volition at the helm. Hopefully this new developer will stay true to the series."
Ummm, Volition is still making this game. In addition to the IP, Deep Silver acquired the studio as well.
The only thing that will be missing is any Ultor or Red Faction references, since they weren't able to get those rights. I was hoping that eventually the end of Saints Row would run into the beginning of Red Faction.
