Koch Media owns publisher Deep Silver (Dead Island). It now owns both the Saints Row and Metro franchises, along with the studios that made them. Fans have every right to be cautious about a management change, but while Koch said in a media release earlier today it "will roll out future plans for each franchise in the coming months", Deep Silver has since tweeted the following:
We're SO EXCITED to be cooperating with @volitioninc and 4A Games on a future for Saints Row and Metro that is faithful to their franchises!— Official Deep Silver (@deepsilver) January 23, 2013
I mean, yeah, of course they'd say that. But in the absence of anything else, it's something for fans to hold on for while they await news of the future.
