Saints Row Reboot Steam Release Date
So, is the 2022 reboot releasing on Steam or not? At the moment, for PC gamers, the game is only available via the Epic Games Store. Understandably, this has many old fans of the series frustrated as they have all older games on Steam. And they want to keep their collection of Saints Row games in one place. If that’s something that’s holding you back from purchasing the reboot at launch, here’s what we know about the game’s Steam release date.
Deep Silver, the owners of the Saints Row franchise and publishers of the Saints Row reboot, are known for their deals with the Epic Games Store. They were the very first publisher to strike a timed-exclusivity deal with Epic, back in early 2019 for Metro Exodus. Since then, they had many of their games published on the Epic Games Store first and then released on Steam after a set amount of time.
Usually, this Epic Games Store exclusive period lasts for six months or a year, depending on the game. But what about the Saints Row 2022 reboot, for how long will it be Epic-exclusive? According to the official Saints Row Twitter account, the Saints Row reboot is coming to Steam in 2023. The exact date hasn’t been provided, but our guess is that it will be a one-year exclusivity period. Thus, the Saints Row reboot will probably launch on Steam on August 23rd, 2023. Another option is that the game will only be exclusive to Epic Games Store for six months. In that case, the Saints Row reboot will come to Steam around February 23rd. We will make sure to update the article as soon as the publisher releases official information.
