Saints Row: The Third – Enter the Dominatrix, a standalone expansion, has been cancelled and will now be incorporated into a full-fledged sequel, THQ has announced.

The decision appears to have been made by newly appointed president Jason Rubin.

"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 Rubin. "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."

He added: "We believe the potential for this sequel is far greater as a full-priced, full-length, high quality, connected experience."

The sequel is tentatively titled "The Next Great Sequel in the Saints Row Franchise" and is slated for release between April 2013 and the end of that year.

I Read the title of the story and was pissed cos was really looking forward to that expansion but after reading the whole story I was like "a new game next year? Ok I'll take that", just hope the superhero thing stays in along with the alien invasion plot line it's what this comedy game needs. Could be the savour of THQ if it does well too.

The outcry was pretty large... and Rubin realised it is probably most unwise to tick off that already established fanbase.

I'm guessing this will be a spinoff sequel a la (AC: Brotherhood/Revelations) rather than Saints Row 4 (which will presumably also release that year, given the CV evidence and comments from Volition staff), in which case I fear one (or both) may not get the full attention necessary...

Probably based on the fact that Saints Row 3 got a lot of praise from gamers.

So... first of all Rubin wished to make the SR series more serious, and a contender against the likes of GTA and RDR.

Now he is fully embracing the blatantly OTT action. And slapping on a higer price tag?

Inconsistent much?

ie: we can actually make more money out of this.

Cynical hat off, it seems like a good idea and just the fact that they're now doing a sequel is good news for me. There's already been a fair few DLC levels for the current game anyway.
