Deep Silver Volition, formerly known as Volition, Inc., was an American video game developer based in Champaign, Illinois. Originally founded in 1993 as Parallax Software (of Descent fame), it split into Volition, Inc. and Outrage Entertainment in 1996.

After the bankruptcy of THQ, they were owned by Koch Media (Deep Silver), who would be acquired by Embracer Group (parent of THQ Nordic) in 2018, making them a sister company to THQ, but only in name.

In November 2022, after Saints Row (2022) failed to meet critical and commercial expectations, Volition was transferred from Deep Silver to Gearbox Software. On August 31, 2023, the studio was shut down by Embracer Group. Following Volition's closure, Deep Silver handled both the Saints Row and Red Faction franchises to Plaion (formerly Koch Media).
