Saints Row 2’s Source Code Has Been Rediscovered, So The PC Version Will Live Again

Volition’s classic Saints Row 2 has been almost unplayable on PC for years after the game’s source code went missing and it turned into a bug-riddled mess. Good news today for anyone who still wants to play it, though: The code has been found, and Volition is working on getting a Steam version released.

The company announced the discovery in a livestream earlier today, saying that a two-person team is getting put to work rebuilding Saints Row 2 from scratch so that it’ll run on more modern systems/hardware configurations. This new version will run on Steam, not Gamespy (if you’d forgotten about Gamespy, it’s OK; this is a 2008 game ported to PC in 2009). It will also bring with it the game’s formerly console-exclusive DLC.

Ever since the game’s lack of updates basically killed it off, the only way to play Saints Row 2 (and its online modes) has been through the hard work of modders, who managed to get around Volition’s absence to varying degrees of success.

No word on a release date yet.

What happened to the source code?

Volition didn’t handle Saints Row 2’s PC port directly, instead that job was done by a team from CD Projekt Red. When THQ went bust in 2012, Volition thought “the source code was lost in the bankruptcy auction”. Seven years later, though, it’s back.

The Week In Games: Saint’s Row On The Go

Saint’s Row The Third will soon be playable anywhere. That’s right, with Saint’s Row coming to the Switch this week fans will finally be able to use a dildo bat to beat people up while they wait for their bus to arrive. What a great future we live in.

Let’s have THAT debate about Saint’s Row. You know what I’m talking about. Which one is better: Saint’s Row 2 or The Third? I’ve long been a member of team Saint’s Row 2, but not long ago I played through both of them again and I really think Saint’s Row The Third holds up better. I’ll always prefer Stillwater over Steelport, though.

Another quiet week with no real “BIG” AAA game release. Instead, some smaller games and ports. A new episode of Life Is Strange 2 releases this week, though I’m waiting for the full season to be out before I start playing. Shakedown: Hawaii looks cool and is heading to PS4, Vita, Switch, and PC. Finally, I’m loving the look of For The King, which comes out later this week for most platforms.
