“To give you a head’s up, you won’t see Dead Island, Saints Row, Metro or TimeSplitters there (or at any other E3 2021 event),” Deep Silver tweeted on Friday. “We’ll let you know when we have news to share.”
In August 2019, it was confirmed that “Volition is deep in development of a brand-new Saints Row game, the first full entry in this much loved series since Saints Row IV was released in 2013.”
At the same time, it was announced that UK-based Dambuster Studios, the team behind 2016’s Homefront: The Revolution studio, had taken over Dead Island 2 development, which was originally led by Yager and later by Sumo Digital.
4A Games said in November 2020 that a new Metro game is being developed for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC, with a complete overhaul of the studio’s engine and renderer to take advantage of the new hardware.
And just last month, Deep Silver set up a new Free Radical studio to revive classic FPS TimeSplitters.
