Saints Row IV is ridiculous. That much has been made clear since day one, from the Saints taking the White House to aliens, superpowers, and Keith David starring as himself. It's the next logical extension after The Third, if such a thing is even possible when talking about the series.
Design director Scott Phillips told Gamereactor that, should the franchise continue after IV -- and that seems entirely possible, at this rate -- we're in for something different.
"We're definitely considering Saints Row IV sort of the end of that saga of this character and the Saints as they are," he explained. "So if there's any more future Saints Rows -- which you know we always hope there will be, we hope there's fans for future games like that -- they will probably continue in a different direction."
For as much as I like the current direction, I know that sentiment isn't shared by everyone. Where are you hoping the series goes from here?
