Deep Silver Teases Saints Row 4 Reveal?

Oh, we all know a fourth Saints Row is coming at some point.

Publisher Deep Silver recently acquired the hit franchise from bankrupted company THQ for $22.3 million, and it seems they won't be sitting on that series name for very long.

Energetic Deep Silver marketing boss Aubrey Norris posted up an exciting Tweet over the weekend:

"Dear media: You're going to want to be at PAX East this year. If not, you're going to be missing out on something HUGE. Just FYI!"

We don't know anything else just yet, but it's likely that Saints Row 4 will be headed our way, perhaps later this year. Deep Silver has apparently been working on the fourth installment since 2011, and they've already called it a "wilder" iteration than any previous series entry...and that's just wacky. However, if SR4 is announced at PAX East, it'll be interesting to see when it's slated to release. Chances are, they don't want to do battle with Grand Theft Auto V... That would be an exceedingly bad idea.

How could Deep Silver have been working on it since 2011 when it was a Volition property?

Who knows...maybe they just took over what was already made and started from there. Either way, at least it's good that someone is keeping the series going.

i think (which aint really worth two cents) deep silver aquired volition along
with saints row.

hopefully, "if" theres going to be a forth, it'll be released early 2014.
i belive thq had plans on releasing a sr4 this year. imo, it would've
been a rush job if you think of the release date of sr3.

This series do *not* need to be wilder.
What it needs is to be more focused, both on story, characters and features, and add polish and details instead of wildness.

Yeah SR2 were the best of them, IMO.

There's too much missing in the third. Too little that invites to exploration - something that is a key factor to every sandbox game. As far as I'm concerned the only real improvement is the vehicle handling.

There are even step backwards compared to SR2. Like the coast. Where's the beaches and variations along the coastline? It's the exact same kind of coastline throughout the entire game.

Or the shops; is it just me or were there next to no variations in clothing any more, with most stores being replicas of each other?

Or how come there are next to no indoor areas other than the player apartments? Even the big landmarks, like that demonic church that simply is *begging* to be explored, is not possible to enter. wtf is up with that?

when did this industry turn into bart simpson outside a gym eating a ice cream in front of all the fat mothers?
everyones become SUCH a tease!

anyway, i hope they tone down the silliness a little and bring the game back to its roots.
i really did not enjoy SR3, the missions just did not feel right it just was not fun at all!
bring back the side missions, and bring back the points system ie how you have to finish x side quests to unlock a side mission.
SR1 and 2 were SOOOOOOOO much wacky fun!
3 just felt so stupid, cheesy and boring!
i love a little tongue in cheek humor, but gigantic purple dildos is probably where id draw the line!
