Saints Row 4 has been announced.
“In the next open-world installment of Saints Row, Deep Silver Volition continues the story of the Third Street Saints by elevating their status to the highest level – the leaders of the free world. In Saints Row IV, the head honcho of the Saints has been elected to the Presidency of the United States. But the Saints are just getting started. Now the larger-than-life insanity of the Saints series gets a new twist with a catastrophic alien invasion, and the aliens have transported the Saints to a bizarro-Steelport simulation. Wield gargantuan superpowers and fight to free humanity from alien granddaddy Zinyak’s mental grasp. Escape the simulation that’s trapped the Saints crew, or die trying.”
The post continued:
“Saints Row IV lets players delve into an arsenal of alien weaponry and technology that will turn each Saint into an ultimate entity of destruction. Utilize out-of-this-world superpowers to fight all the way to the top. With intensified action and enhanced customization, players can use their newfound superpowers and leap over buildings, outrun the fastest sports cars, or send enemies flying with telekinesis in the greatest, most insane installment of Saints Row yet.”
Saints Row 4 will be out on current-gen consoles and PC on August 20, 2013, in North America and August 23, 2013, in the rest of the world.

Koch Media CEO Klemens Kundratitz said that the two games will “no doubt” launch in 2013. He did, however, express that Deep Silver will not be doing grand ambitious projects. He recognizes the need to work with what you have got, and not go overboard. It was a clear hint towards THQ.
He also stated that a lack of AAA success along with lack of Apple caused the company’s downfall.
