Gi - Saints Row 4‘s announcement was not a surprise. There was no real question about the development and supposed existence of a follow-up to the brilliantly outlandish Saints the Third. Yet THQ declaring bankruptcy and selling off its popular franchises like it was a Raymond Carver short story, kind of threw a wrench in the future of many games in development. Despite the hiccup, Deep Sliver and Koch Media scooped up the Saints Row franchise and developer Volition in January. Two months later, Deep Silver announced that Saints Row 4 would be released on Aug 20 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. That is impressive. The game went from whispers about its existence to a nebulous grey area tied up in bankruptcy proceedings to having an announced release date with gorgeous gameplay footage to show.
