Volition said a few words about the closure, noting that the services were not seeing much use anymore:
The decision to switch off the servers was difficult for us and not taken lightly. We want our fans to enjoy our work for as long as possible. However more than 4 years after Saints Row IV released, we have experienced a significant reduction in the numbers of players using these services.Players will be unable to access My Steelport starting January 31st, 2018.
