So after weeks of speculations based on leaks online, we finally got official confirmation that Saints Row: The Third will receive a remaster that will release on May 22nd 2020 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on the Epic Games Store. [Source: see trailer below]

Update 19:

Naked Oleg
They couldn't bother to add anything new? Or change anything? So no better customization, same bland world (mind you it'll be shinier, but the same exact shine in every spot), not being able to downgrade from upgrades, etc. Seems like a wasted opportunity. Especially since its a remaster. This looks more like an HD texture pack than anything. I can't see myself being hyped for this.
With all the Me Too, & Politically Correct stuuufff.
I'm wondering if they're going to nerf the sex appeal slider & nude pixies.
I really hope not.
they already nerfed the slider way back for SRIV but only for male Boss. Boss' dick was crushed under the oppressive boot of political correctness worn by V themselves and we already live in the world you describe, our priceless boner rights trampled into the ground
