Volition, Inc. is an American video game developer. Volition is located in Champaign, Illinois. The company was created when Parallax Software (developers of the Descent series) was split in two, led by Mike Kulas in November 1996. The other half was the now-defunct Outrage Entertainment who developed Descent3 and Alter Echo.
With Interplay Entertainment as a publisher, Volition, Inc. developed the FreeSpace series of space simulation computer games. As Interplay tumbled towards bankruptcy, Volition, Inc. was acquired by THQ in September 2000. Since then, Volition, Inc. has developed several acclaimed titles including the Red Faction series, the Summoner series, The Punisher, and the Saints Row series.
