THQ has revealed that Saints Row fans can expect a return of the franchise in 2013.
Releasing a statement today, THQ’s president Jason Rubin confirmed there’s a new title in development, and interestingly, the planned DLC package aptly named “Enter The Dominatrix” will not release as a digital product. The DLC will now be incorpoated into Saints Row 4 instead:
“When I looked at the Enter The Dominatrix expansion in production at Volition, I was blown away by the ideas and desire to expand the fiction of the franchise. I asked the team what it could achieve given more time, more resources, and a broader scope for the project. We all agreed we wanted to play that game. When it comes to Saints Row, it’s clear our fans want bigger, better, and even more over the top, and that’s why Enter The Dominatrix will now be incorporated into a vastly expanded, full-fledged sequel, scheduled for calendar 2013.”
Nothing else is known about the next Saints Row game, whether it’s Saints Row 4 or simply Saints Row: The Third.5 – only time will tell.
