Rumor: Volition And Deep Silver Working On New Title Agents of Mayhem

Volition (Saints Row IV) and Deep Silver are allegedly working on a new title, Agents of Mayhem. The rumor is fueled by three different sources, all citing the project by name.

The first piece of evidence is a trademark filed and available for viewing at the European Union Intellectual Property Office. The entire document can be viewed here at the official site.

The second clue is in the form of a resume for animator John Velazquez, which cites the title as one of the recent projects that he has worked on. This document can be viewed here.

The final piece of the puzzle is buried at Istunt, a stunt actor directory. In the profile of one Brandon Molale, the title is listed under one of his motion capture projects. You can view the page here.

We have reached out to Volition/Deep Silver for comment and will update the story with any new information.

Our Take
It has become increasingly difficult to keep secrets as the internet becomes more and more of a pervasive element in the lives of most people, and even an innocuous resume posting can mess up a big reveal or tightly kept secret. We'll see if this ends up being the next big game for Volition and Deep Silver!
