THQ Folding Enter The Dominatrix Content Into Saints Row Sequel

Players who have been looking to fire up Saints Row: The Third again with new DLC this summer should probably sit down for this news. THQ has announced that the Enter the Dominatrix content, which was announced as a $29.99 expansion, has been folded into development of the next Saints Row game.

"When I looked at the Enter The Dominatrix expansion in production at Volition, I was blown away by the ideas and desire to expand the fiction of the franchise,” says Jason Rubin, THQ’s President. “I asked the team what it could achieve given more time, more resources, and a broader scope for the project. We all agreed we wanted to play that game. When it comes to Saints Row, it’s clear our fans want bigger, better, and even more over the top, and that’s why Enter The Dominatrix will now be incorporated into a vastly expanded, full-fledged sequel, scheduled for calendar 2013.”

There aren't many details regarding the upcoming game, aside from the vague 2013 release timeline and its tentative title, The Next Great Sequel in the Saints Row Franchise. Volition is undoubtedly excited about this content, which includes Matrix-like superpowers. We wouldn't be surprised if Rubin ultimately pushed development in this direction to focus the studio's efforts on a full-on sequel instead of devoting staff on DLC for a game that released in November, 2011.

THQ announced that this decision didn't come without a cost. With the cancellation of the $29.99 DLC, the company says its fiscal 2013 outlook has been reduced by $20 million.
