Volition, Inc. is a video game developer for consoles and Windows-based PCs. Volition is located in Champaign, Illinois. The company was created when Parallax Software (developers of the critically-lauded Descent series) was split in two. The other half was the now-defunct Outrage Entertainment who developed Descent and Alter Echo.

With Interplay Entertainment as a publisher, Volition developed the FreeSpace series of space simulation computer games. As Interplay tumbled towards bankruptcy, Volition was acquired by THQ in September 2000. Since then, Volition has developed several acclaimed titles including the Red Faction series, the Summoner series, The Punisher, and the Saints Row series.
