It was confirmed February 1, 2016 Saw VIII is in development with a 2017 release.
According to Schmoes Know, co-producer Daniel J. Heffner has revealed that an eighth Saw film is currently in development.
On October 16th, 2014, Den Of Geek reported that Saw 8 was a possibility for 2016. In an interview with ShockTilYouDrop, the site quoted producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules' interview regarding the progression of Saw 8, and also the involvement of James Wan and Leigh Whannell. Regarding Wan and Whannell, the article stated that they, "...were so afraid of being the Saw guys. They were trying to make their own mark. They've certainly done that. Wan has moved on to The Conjuring, Insidious and next year's Fast & Furious 7. Meanwhile, Leigh Whannell is in post-production on Insidious Chapter 3."
"They're very comfortable to come back", Koules continued. "James and Leigh are absolutely going to put their mark on it. It's one of the reasons we agreed to do this again... The plan is to go to Comic-Con, not next summer but the summer after with our heads up saying 'here we go'", adding that now, "everyone has time and it's time."
The film was renamed Jigsaw, from Saw: Legacy in June 2017.
