THQ Nordic has bought Koch Media for 121m euros.
Koch Media owns Deep Silver, who publish games developed by Volition, who made Saints Row and the recently released Agents of Mayhem.
According to this article, Deep Silver are working on four major projects at the moment, which include Metro Exodus, Dead Island 2, an unannounced game from Dambuster (Homefront devs) and... a new Saints Row game from Volition.
"THQ Nordic boss Lars Wingefors said it reckons Deep Silver will release at least four ongoing triple-A projects, including Metro Exodus, the next game from Volition (a new Saints Row) and the next triple-A game from Dambuster. In May 2017, Deep Silver told Eurogamer Dead Island 2 was still alive, despite no news emerging on the game in over a year. It's in the works at UK studio Sumo Digital."
This also means THQ have full control over the Saints Row franchise again, and as such, could possibly make the game more grounded like Saints Row 1/2 and to an extent, 3.
Do you think they will announce the new SR at E3? Or will there be a wait given the recent release of AoM?
