THQ and Volition have confirmed that Saints Row 2 on PC will now be released in North America on January 6, 2009.

"The PC version was delayed because we wanted to make the highest quality game across all platforms, but it just needed more time," explained a Saints Row 2 community moderator. "The game is a port of the console version from an external company, but that doesn't mean the code can just be copied over, and ship it out. The PC version is still being produced and tested at Volition with support from the design and programming teams as needed. This is in no way a hands-off external port of the game."

Other factors to consider that have contributed to the delay include the new PC mouse/keyboard control scheme, multiplayer interface changes and the implementation of adjustable video settings (anti-aliasing, resolution and more).

The moderator concluded: "Our goal is to give PC users the same quality product and performance level which you've seen on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, along with all of the review feedback. You will not have any features missing from the game if you purchase the PC version as opposed to a console version, the entire game is packed in."

There's currently no word on when the PC version will be released in the UK.

I've been waitin for this 1 for a while and now they take it away from me !! it will be out of date by the time it released is gtaIV still being released

Personally I think they were just being crafty and thought we can't release these 2 games so close together they might lose half of the potential profits between the 2

why not release them 2 months apart init we make more money!! :)
