THQ last night announced that the third game in the "Saints Row" series is in production and will be released in the 2011 holiday season.
Saints Row: The Third is a new installment in the GTA-style action adventure series.
Just as the name suggests, Saints Row: The Third
is the third game in the open-world crime series. This time taking the franchise in a "new direction."
Years after taking Stilwater for their own, the Third Street Saints have evolved from street gang to household brand name, with Saints sneakers, Saints energy drinks and Johnny Gat bobble head dolls all available at a store near you. The Saints are kings of Stilwater, but their celebrity status has not gone unnoticed. The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute. Refusing to kneel to the Syndicate, you take the fight to Steelport, a once-proud metropolis reduced to a struggling city of sin under Syndicate control. Take a tank skydiving, call in a satellite-targeted airstrike on a Mexican wrestling gang, and defend yourself against a highly-trained military force using only a sex toy in the most out- landish gameplay scenarios ever seen, igniting a city-wide war that will set Steelport on fire. Strap it on must conquer the city or face destruction. But this is no ordinary city. Gateway to the Rust Belt, Stilwater is a living-breathing environment where enemies may strike back at any time and send you reeling for reinforcements. Saints Row 2 brings true freedom to open-world gaming. Players can play as who they want, how they want, and with whomever they want in this sequel to the much acclaimed and tremendously successful Saints Row.
This has probably been the worst kept secret in gaming history but it looks like we will be seeing it late this year.
