The 2022 Saints Row reboot tells a vague, yet cautionary tale of why college-age hipsters shouldn't get into criminal businesses without any actual everlasting consequences...

Though the setting is well-designed (even with the lack of interiors in freeroam) and some of the features (like layered clothing customization) make a return, it doesn't match up to what the first two games had to offer, not to mention the amount of glitches that were present at launch. This was the last Saints Row game to be developed by Volition, as the studio would close over a year later.

To do:
  • Document unused content that can be found here
  • Development Oversights:
    • Voice line subtitle error in Good Cop/Bad Cop mission
    • Early HUD in tutorial videos.
  • The Boss Factory contains some early stuff.
  • Unseen details outside of Santo Ileso.
  • Patch notes up to Update 1.6.


Revisional Differences
Lots and lots and lots of bugfixes quality-of-life updates.

Unused Graphics

Map Icons


An earlier icon for the Photo Discovery icon (map_discoveries_photo). Final uses map_discoveries_photoB, with an image next to the camera.

SRR map discoveries Photo.png

A scrapped map "Discovery" for a Firetruck (likely the Blaze), instead of appearing as a Side Hustle. They do appear in the final except without hose water.

SRR map discoveries Firetruck.png

A discovery icon for snakes. In the final game, the desert of Santo Ileso is a completely snake-free zone.

Don't make a messsssss~

An icon for dive spots, which may have functioned similar to dumpster diving except in the water.

SRR map discoveries Scuba.png

A scrapped discovery internally called "Fast Identity". Maybe it was to do with credit cards at banks?

SRR map discoveries Fast Identity.png

An icon for a pole dancer (map_discoveries_stripper), likely intended for the scrapped pole-dancing diversion.

SRR map discoveries Stripper.png


An icon for a car garage, according to the filename, rather than a car dealer. The graphic would be used in the V1.2 update, albeit purple.

SRR map store garage.png

An icon for a scrapped surgeon store. Likely scrapped in favor of the surgery being easily accessible via the phone.

SRR map store surgeon.png

Icon likely intended for a yard sale store, despite the filename saying "unknown".

SRR map store unknown.png

Early Perks

There's a handful of scrapped Perks in this graphic file, including a... peculiar placeholder graphic.

SRR PerksIcons.png
  • There's a scrapped Perk for a Human Shield ability, which was likely replaced with a similar one in the final.
  • Molotovs were originally going to be in the game as usable weapons, but got scrapped.

Hidden Concept Art

Found inside the bitmaps/dev_launcher folder contains 21 hi-res pieces of concept art from varying points of development, apparently leftover from a development launcher. All are dated August 24, 2022.

Unused Text

Placeholder Text

Placeholder text intended for combos.



Internal Filename

Many of the filenames refer to the game as "sr5", standing for "Saints Row 5".

Regional Differences

Japanese Version

Modesty cannot be accessed in customization, due to CERO rating legislations of nudity in video games, thus the Boss' mosaic blur cannot be customized with emoticons, nor can it be toggled to show nipples.

Revisional Differences

Neenah I'd thought you'd want to know I- I heard back from the museum. Uh, they- they went with someone else for the junior art curator job, so looks like I'm stuck with Los Panteros. Just FYI, we hit a shipment of antiquities last night while you Marshall types were busy. Score one for Los Panteros.
Neenah Anyway, I'm glad one of us had a good day at least. See you soon! You'd think Sergio would ask me to assess them. It's not like he has an art history degree.
Neenah But no, "I only pay you to drive, Neenah". *sigh*
Neenah Either way, he at least paid me. See you soon!

Eli Speaking of which, um, when you asked me to borrow my copy of "Be Your Own Boss", I assumed it was 'cause you wanted to read it, not to level out the coffee table. I wanted to let you know, the bank turned me down for the loan, so...
Eli So let's talk about that when you get back. Can't wait to hear about all the HR forms I'm sure you had to sign! I'm gonna lose the deal on that warehouse in Providencia.
Eli I guess "Eli's Real Estate Investment Trust, LLC" remains a sixteen space parking lot...
Eli I mean, for now though, right? Who knows? Anyway. Can't wait to hear about your day.

Kevin Oh, and it's official - I'm gonna be spinning at that Idols party I told you about, so I hope you can come! T-T-Y-L! She said if I DJ for her next Tuesday, she'll hook up my friend at the hardware store...
Kevin ...who, in exchange, will fix the bathroom plumbing for us.
Kevin Finally we can stop waiting for the landlord to get off his ass.
Kevin Also, I'm making brunch to celebrate your first day on the job. Don't be late!
