Embracer is not entirely satisfied with Saints Row's reception



Saints Row was released exactly a month ago and … probably didn't impress very many. The ratings have been relatively low - enough to cause the Embracer share to decline - and sales do not seem to have been very good either. During Embrace's annual meeting, CEO Lars Wingefors had the following to say:

"Personally, I had hoped for a better reception for the game. It has been very polarizing. There are many details to address about it - on the one hand I am happy to see so many players and fans happy, but on the other hand I am sorry to see fans who are not happy, so it is difficult.

I think we need to wait for the quarterly report in November to get more details on this. We are still quite early in our release window and are still collecting data, and so we have bug fixes and more content on the way.

- Lars Wingefors

He also says he is sure that the game will actually go with a profit, but that it will probably not be as big a profit as with "many other games". Regarding how this will affect Saints Row as a series, he said that hundreds of people are involved in the game and that he trusts that they can make recommendations for the future.

At least I very much liked it, memories from the classic series came back and made me giggle several times.
