We had a few hints that Saints Row developer Volition was working on something new. and now it looks like the rumors are true. The new IP is called Agents of Mayhem, and will be set in the Saints Row universe.
It an madcap superhero title where MAYHEM (Multinational Agency for Hunting Evil Masterminds), led by one Persephone Brimstone, takes on the bad guys of LEGION (League of Evil Gentlemen Intent on Obliterating Nations) ruthlessly run by Doctor Babylon. Of course, Saints Row reveled in its over-the-top nature, so Volition seems to be keeping the game close to what made the original series popular.
Here is the exclusive trailer from IGN:
The game, which is being developed for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, is expected to come out some time in 2017. Here are some official screenshots from the announcement.
