The trailer presenting the “reboot” of Saints Row has apparently disappointed many Internet users, and they have shown themselves sufficiently on YouTube. Volition says he hears the grumbling, without however saying he is ready to “backtrack” .

Barometer that we will want to ignore or consider depending on the case, YouTube evaluations allow in any case to observe at a glance the reception of such or such content on the platform.

The Saints Row video game franchise, like many others before it, will experience a new start through an episode that will ignore any numbering or subtitle. A trailer recently featured the thing, and the preview portrayed in those footage, also devoid of any gameplay footage, to have mostly displeased rather than beguiled.

Saints Row “Reboot” Trailer: Volition says it “understood” the discontent

Two days after the posting of this trailer on the YouTube accounts of Saints Row, PlayStation and Xbox, the conclusion is clear: thumbs down are popular. On the official account of the game, there are some 15,000 positive evaluations against 21,000 negative. At Xbox, around 6,500 thumbs up are trying to stand up against 4,900 others turned down. Finally, on the PlayStation account side, 10,000 positive reviews face 9,900 negative feedbacks.

It is obvious that the mobilization of a small number of people is enough to lead to a real campaign of relentlessness, and if the reactions may appear exaggerated here, the totality of the written comments are certainly a more measured disappointment, but nonetheless noticeable.

On the game's Twitter account, the Volition studio responded to a user saddened by the turn taken by the license:

“We're not backing down on this game. We get it, it's new and it's a shock reaction to a reboot like no other.”

The time is obviously not for questioning at Volition, and sales will say if it was wise to mix a Fortnite aesthetic and uninhibited GTA gameplay.

Release scheduled for February 22, 2022 on PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X / S and PC via the Epic Game Store.

We are not backing down on this game. We get it, it’s new and it’s a shock reaction to a reboot like no other. The gif was supposed to convey that. — Saints Row (@SaintsRow) August 26, 2021
