ORIGINAL STORY 6/4/20:
The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has a listing for Saints Row: The Third Remastered, courtesy of publisher Koch Media and due out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Volition’s Saints Row: The Third launched back in 2011 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 by now-defunct publisher THQ. The outlandish Grand Theft Auto-style game was infamous for its sex toy bat, which was an in-game weapon as well as an actual real-life promotional tool. A Nintendo Switch port, which wasn’t great according to Digital Foundry, came out in 2019.
The release of Saints Row: The Third Remastered makes sense in the run up to the announcement of the next mainline Saints Row. Koch Media is expected to talk about that at some point in 2020.
