One of the biggest franchises in today's THQ brouhaha is Saints Row, and it will be joining the Metro series under the Koch Media/Deep Silver umbrella. The publisher recently sent out a press release welcoming them (and Volition) into the fold.

“These franchises hold a special place in the hearts and minds of anyone who loves exceptional video games,” said Geoff Mulligan, COO of Deep Silver. “We’re thrilled to usher in a new era for these franchises and are proud to welcome the visionaries and talented forces at Volition on board.”

No immediate plans were detailed for the franchises, but Koch Media/Deep Silver stated that they'll roll out more info in the coming months.
