In the fall, we plan to release the latest instalment of our Saints Row franchise, which we view as a significant growth driver in fiscal 2012,” THQ CEO Brain Farrell said in an earnings call, as reported by Eurogamer.

Volition is setting a new bar for this outstanding franchise and we look forward to unveiling this game in the near future.”
