Volition and THQ announced today that the standalone expansion to Saints Row: The Third, titled Enter The Dominatrix, will be cancelled. Instead, all of the work the developer put into it will go into next year’s Saints Row 4.

“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,” THQ President Jason Rubin said in an official press release. “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.

“We believe the potential for this sequel is far greater as a full-priced, full-length, high quality, connected experience.”

I really enjoyed my time with Saints Row: The Third and I do like some of the games THQ has made over the years. So it’s good to see Rubin come in and make smarter decisions about their core franchises. Hopefully with these types of moves it looks as though THQ will be around for years to come.
