[Update: A mod on the Volition forums has spoken and stated that the game will be available for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. Unfortunate.]
When THQ went bankrupt earlier this year, many thought their beloved franchises would die off, too. Thankfully that’s not the case, as Deep Silver rescued Volition Games and the Saints Row franchise and will now serve as publisher for the series. The latest installment is Saint’s Row IV and will be released August 20th in the United States and August 23rd everywhere else.
The official announcement of the game only states “next-gen consoles” as the target, so we’re not sure if the game will be available for Wii U or not. Nintendo fans have been lobbying pretty hard for Grand Theft Auto V, so Deep Silver could definitely win some brownie points by making the game available to Wii U owners.
Much like Saints Row 3, the fourth installment appears to be full of over the top sandbox fun. Let us know your thoughts below.
