The US President using superhuman powers to save the the planet from aliens, heroes tearing hell apart, and gamers fighting for survival on a zombie infested island - what the hell is next?!

Fortunately, it doesn't look like we'll have to wait much longer, as THQ Nordic quietly confirmed that new Saints Row and Dead Island games are in the works. In the publisher's Interim Report Q1, as reported by PC Gamer, stated that the Deep Silver Volition team is "deep in development of a brand-new Saints Row game" which will be the first full entry in the popular series since Saints Row IV's release in 2013, and five years since the epilogue expansion Saints Row: Gat out of Hell.

Meanwhile, Dambuster Studios has been "entrusted" with the Dead Island franchise and will lead the development of Dead Island 2, which has been in limbo for quite some time.
