Volition, the developer behind Saints Row, is expected to announce a new IP at the upcoming E3 2016.
The news comes via the LinkedIn profile of the studio’s former Creative Director Jacques Hennequet. Hennequet, who left the company last month, says that during his time at Volition, he worked on a new IP which will be announced at E3 2016.
Saints Row Developer Volition to Announce New IP at E3
Earlier this month, we reported that Volition is working on a new game called Agents of Mayhem. The developer not only has trademarked the title, but it has also appeared in the profiles of animator John Velazquez and Motion Capture artist Brandon Molale.
This is not all! Earlier this year, Klemens Kundratitz confirmed that the studio has a lot of games in the pipeline and will make the next major announcement at the upcoming E3 2016. To read up the entire interview, head over to the post!
It is also being said that Agents of Mayhem is somehow linked to Saints Row. Currently, we do not know that the Volition’s upcoming announcement is related to Agents of Mayhem or something else entirely – we do know that it is going to be new IP and not Saints Row 5 or Metro.
Looking forward to whatever Volition has been cooking for E3 2016?
