Saints Row Needs To Sell Two Million Copies To Break Even
The title just can't seem to catch a break
Resident Evil, Dead Space, and Saints Row are just some of the greatest and most influential games to have ever been made, and their parenting studios try to take their nostalgia and love and try to replicate what they did in the past. Unfortunately, these remakes can go either way.
The Saints Row series itself has been on a long-term hiatus ever since the less than stellar reception of the series spin-off “Agents of Mayhem”. And the last entry in the SR series dates back to 2015 with Saints Row: Gat out of Hell.
The Saints Row series has recently released a reboot of their action-adventure video game with the same name. Developed by Volition, Saints Row is famous for its massive open world, goofy mechanics, and its detailed character customization. As you take the role of the Boss of “The Saints,” prepare for an experience like no other.
Well, the experience ended up being underwhelming, boring, and just not feeling like an honorable Saints Row experience. With the mass hate for the game growing larger and many reviews tanking left and right, we come to a major problem the game has been experiencing, its sales.
To put it bluntly, it is doing badly economically, barely hitting the required sales to break even. As it stands, the title needs to sell at least 2 million copies just to break even, not a good number to be looking at. But it seems that not all hope is lost.

$EMBRAC ABG Sundal Collier talks about the current state of Saints Row. He says that the game, although falling behind, is still doing decent in the market.
He goes on to say that it is still highly grossing on many platforms and due to the competition in the market being lower than usual, the game might hit the extra 2 million copies that it so desperately needs.
The mass hate that the game receives might actually help it as it brings more popularity to the game, albeit not in a good light. The chances that it will hit its intended target are plausible, but take it with a grain of salt.
Even if the title breaks even, will the team work towards a sequel for the game? Or will the franchise be buried with a list of lies and broken promises? That is yet to be seen.
