A few months back, THQ revealed that Volition were working on yet another, more substantial expansion to their successful sandbox title Saints Row: The Third. Cheekily titled Enter the Dominatrix, the new content promised to introduce superpowers into the already humourously over-the-top series in a expansion significant enough that they had planned as a standalone release that would not require purchasers to own the original game -- similar to Rockstar's well-received Undead Nightmare product for Red Dead Redemption.
"Faster than a speeding cyber jetbike, more powerful than a roided-out Luchadore, able to leap flying aircraft carriers in a single bound... that’s the power you’ll find inside the Dominatrix. Use it for good. Use it for evil. Use it for whatever you want. As always in Saints Row, it’s up to you,” said Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President, Core Game Production, THQ Inc.
Today however, THQ's new president Jason Rubin has announced that they're going one step further: delaying the expansion's release to bake a complete new Saints Row game.
"When I looked at the Enter The Dominatrix expansion in production at Volition, I was blown away by the ideas and desire to expand the fiction of the franchise,” said Jason Rubin, THQ’s President. “I asked the team what it could achieve given more time, more resources, and a broader scope for the project. We all agreed we wanted to play that game. When it comes to Saints Row, it’s clear our fans want bigger, better, and even more over the top, and that’s why Enter The Dominatrix will now be incorporated into a vastly expanded, full-fledged sequel, scheduled for calendar 2013.”

Added Rubin, “We believe the potential for this sequel is far greater as a full-priced, full-length, high quality, connected experience.”
The Press release remarks that the product's delay is expected to result in a $20 million reduction in net sales for the publisher's 2013 fiscal year.

No new details on the game's content were offered.

Sweet, been playing through saints row 3 and that game is bananas. In an awesome way. It has a pimp who ONLY TALKS IN AUTOTUNE.

Lol at Rubin trying to turn around the bad PR from last week.

Hah, yeah, that guy is awesome. And the mission where you have to rescue him from the S&M club is hilarious, thats some of the most fun I think I've ever had in a game

I ruined the game by putting the all weapons cheat in. I wish I didn't do that because I was having heaps of fun. Also, my chicky babe was hot as hell too.

so what you're trying to tell me is that i should buy saints row 3 during steam's summer sale?

it's been $20 on intkeys for a while now ... don't know why I've been holding back considering I've been wanting GTA to go back to more GTA III craziness.

I highly recommend playing the story with a mate via online co-op, utter chaos & rather hilarious. Hell if someone needs a co-op partner I'll put my hand up :)
