Saints Row: The Third – Enter the Dominatrix No Longer Expansion, Now Part of the Sequel

by on June 20, 2012
 

Fans of Saints Row: The Third and the franchise it belongs to were certainly aware that the game’s standalone expansion, Enter the Dominatrix, was destined to bring an entirely new breed of absurdity into the limelight when it launched later this year. While it will still be delivering the whimsy, it will no longer be doing so under the banner of the third game in the Saints Row series. Instead, Enter the Dominatrix is now set to become something even more broad in scope: the fourth game in the Saints Row series.

Tentatively named The Next Great Sequel in the Saints Row Franchise, the newest game in the series is set to break new ground in a series that is known for it. New THQ President Jason Rubin, a man that recently expressed his embarrassment when playing Saints Row: The Third in front of his family, is more than a little enthusiastic about the new direction for what was once going to be a mere expansion upon a preexisting title.

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

Now releasing a full year later than anticipated, Enter the Dominatrix will see its net sales shift from THQ’s fiscal 2013 to fiscal 2014, a move that will see a reduction of approximately $20 million to the company’s non-GAAP net sales as well as an $0.03 impact on non-GAAP net loss.
