Deep Silver has something “huge” planned for PAX East, and the buzzing on Twitter points to possible news on Saints Row 4, which the firm’s parent company picked up during the THQ auction.
According to a tweet from the firm’s Aubrey Norris: “Dear Media: You’re going to want to be at PAX East this year. If not, you’re going to be missing out on something HUGE. Just FYI!”
Lots of poking and prodding from her followers yielded nothing; however, a tweet from Chris Stockman, who was design director on Saints Row 1 and is currently lead designer at Human Head, tweeted he’s heard “around the campfire” that the game is slated for current-gen consoles in August.
While it’s entirely possible that some news regarding Volition could be announced during the event, GTA 5 is set for a September which would put SR4 on retail shelves a month before Rockstar’s release. This would either be an odd move on Koch’s part or a very ballsy one.
We’ll all just have to wait and find out what Deep Silver has in store for the world March 22-24 when PAX East invades Boston.
