The game, codenamed "Zeus," was to take place in Rio in the wake of an apocalyptic disaster. Players would control a gunslinging Western-style hero, and gameplay would largely take place on-foot, contrasting the superheroic traversal powers featured in Saints Row 4.
Donovan cites a lack of time and resources as the reasons behind the project's cancellation. "Right or wrong, we know we could've made this game," he said. "But it would've taken too long. It wouldn't have been the responsible thing to do." Currently, the studio is developing a "top-secret" project built on its early experiments with Zeus.
