Volition creative director Steve Jaros announced yesterday he will no longer be a part of the company, instead moving on to hopefully bigger and better things at Valve Software.
News of Jaros’ departure came from the man himself yesterday afternoon within a series of tweets published on his personal Twitter account. “The past 10 years at Volition have been life changing,” Jaros wrote. “I’ve gotten to work with amazing people and made friends that will last a life time. I’m super proud of the work we did on Saints Row, and am excited for what Volition does in the future, but it’s time for me to move on. I’m looking forward to new adventures at Valve Software.”
Jaros was the creative director for Saints Row IV and the upcoming Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell. He didn’t go into specifics as to what will happen to the upcoming Saints Row title, although we think it’s safe to assume development of the title will go on without his creative input. We're hoping it'll live up to the expectations that Saints Row IV set. If it doesn't, then we'll all be keeping a close eye on what Jaros does for Valve as we would certainly be interested in seeing what he comes up with.
