Saints Row: The Third has reached more than 5.5 million players, says Rubin
Saints Row: The Third has been played by 5.5 million people, according to a tweet from THQ president Jason Rubin. Although it’s not clear if the figure refers to units shipped or sold, the “hit nobody realized was a hit” had shipped 5 million units worldwide in November, suggesting it’s probably the former. Rubin said this total doesn’t include Humble Bundle Sales, which would round out to about 6.3 million. The next Saints Row game began life as an expansion but will be fleshed out to a full sequel.
