It is not yet an official announcement, but the following leak should be almost as credible: An entry with the American age classification organization ESRB reveals that Koch Media is probably one Saints Row: The Third Remaster will publish.
There was already a new edition for the Nintendo Switch in 2019, but the port was not really convincing. Among other things, Eurogamer criticized major technical defects.
All the more fans can now look forward to a new one Remastered version for PC, PS4 and Xbox One looking forward. The original Saints Row: The Third from 2011 already inspired our editorial team. In the GameStar TV episode for Plus subscribers you can see not only the reasons for this, but also how little Petra Schmitz and Michael Graf have aged since:
GameStar TV: Saints Row: The Third – Episode 45/2011
Saints Row: The Third was absurd & bloody
In the test for Saints Row: The Third we gave 85 points at the time. It was a technically weaker, but nevertheless successful alternative to GTA 4. At that time the German version appeared cut – it remains to be seen how a remastered will be handled. The entry at the ESRB reveals that it will be just as brutal in the American version as in the original: stuff grenades in the mouth of opponents, check. Attack civilians or use them as a protective shield, check.
An official announcement of the remaster could follow soon, unless the corona pandemic does not spoil the new publisher Koch Media (the original was still released by THQ). Many companies and studios had to send their employees to the home office and large game fairs such as the E3 were canceled.
