A listing on the ESRB site has revealed that a remastered version of the third Saints Row game – Saints Row: The Third Remastered – is coming to the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. How it’ll differ from the original release is unknown, but until Volition and Deep Silver make an official announcement, we can assume the usual improvements: higher-quality textures, better lighting, and so on.

Here is Volition’s official synopsis for the game, which has garnered overwhelmingly positive reviews on Steam:

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.

In a November 2019 interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Koch Media’s Klemens Kundratitz revealed that a fifth game – a follow-up to 2013’s Saints Row IV – would be revealed in 2020. “Saints Row is very close to our hearts, and we’ll talk about it next year,” he said. “For the time being, we just wanted to get the word out that it’s coming and it’s going to be great.”
