THQ-owned Volition appears to have put Red Faction: Guerrilla to bed: it’s now flaunting a “Secret Project X” on its site’s “games” page.

What is it? It’s Saints Row 3, unless the studio’s doing something else besides. The game’s already been confirmed for a fiscal 2011 release by THQ.

If you need any more convincing, Saints Row 2 associate producer Dan Sutton said in October 2008 that, “We’ve already started work on Saints Row 3, and we have a new direction we want to go in with that which we of course can’t talk about.”

The studio’s last products were Red Faction: Guerrilla DLC in the form of Demons of the Badland in August, a Multiplayer Pack in September and a “Smasher Pack” in October.

We’ll have a chat with THQ, innit.
