The recently announced Saints Row reboot hasn't been performing as well as publisher Deep Silver and the parent Embracer Group would have certainly wanted.

While the game has risen towards the top of the charts, it failed to get over the most important hurdle: dethroning Saints Row's one and perhaps only significant rival, Grand Theft Auto.

The figures from European game sales data reveal that Saints Row took the second spot only after GTA 5.Saints Row is the reboot of the 2006 action-adventure under the same name, which was considered the only rival of the open-world kind that could challenge Grand Theft Auto.

Deep Silver published the reboot almost exactly a month ago and immediately was compared to both the current and upcoming GTA games.
