This makes me sad.
Volition, the developer that continues to bring us the amazing Saints Row series was working on a next-gen open world post-apocalyptic Western, code-named Zeus. Before you get excited, it’s been canned. The sad news comes from a GDC panel last week, where Volition senior producer Greg Donovan gave us hope before promptly ripping it from our hands.
The reasoning behind the cancellation? They wanted to be responsible.
“Right or wrong, we know we could’ve made this game,” Donovan said. “But it would’ve taken too long. It wouldn’t have been the responsible thing to do.”
I think I can speak for all of us when I say screw responsibility — I want a next-gen open world post-apocalyptic Western from the makers of Saints Row!
Sadly, it’s not happening. Pity, because I’m sure it would’ve been fantastic. At the very least, Volition is currently working on a “top secret” game that is using some of the foundation set for Zeus. Hopefully we’ll hear more about that soon.
