Saints Row 3 will be even less GTA inspired
Series such as Saints Row have been criticised in the past for doing just this and it seems that THQ has finally got the message. The company has revealed that Saints Row 3 will be “less urban” and “definitely not about ‘gangsta'”.
THQ’s Danny Bilson told CVG:
We don’t compete with GTA. We’re differentiating even further with GTA with this one… The only thing it has in common with GTA is open world, tonnes of options for the player and a certain amount of crime. But even in the new game, it’s not exactly like that either. There are new gangs in a new world and it’s not just about criminals.
This can only be a good thing for gamers as no one likes a copycat!
Little is known about Saints Row 3, except that THQ are aiming to release it sometime between mid-2011 and mid-2012. This means it could very well be up against the release of the next Grand Theft Auto.
