Saints Row 3 Remastered is coming to Steam on May 22.
Confirmation came when a fan – replying to a year-old tweet on the official Saints Row Twitter account – asked if there were "plans" to bring the remastered version of the game to Steam.
In a surprise reply, the official account responded with a brief affirmation: "Yes May 22".
Yes May 22April 28, 2021
In May 2020, the remaster was released on console, but it had only been available on PC via Epic Games Store due to a year-long platform exclusivity deal.
At the time of writing, Deep Silver has stopped short of confirming anything else, including whether or not Steam players with the original game can expect a free upgrade; as always, we'll let you know if/when/as this changes (thanks, Eurogamer).
Yes, the Saints Row movie announced back in 2019 remains in development, with Fast and Furious 8 director F. Gary Gray on board to direct. Details remain at a premium, though a new interview with screenwriter Greg Russo has revealed which cinematic cornerstones the upcoming adaptation will take inspiration from.
"I looked at different films that I really love," he said recently. "I'm a big fan of '70s cinema, so I looked at The Warriors, I looked at Escape From New York – just some of those classics. And I said, 'Well, how do we pull from some of those and tell our own unique story?'"
Russo has a few other video-game adaptations on his plate. First up, there's the Mortal Kombat reboot, which recently released on HBO Max. Then there's the upcoming Resident Evil reboot, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, which he has co-written. Russo also co-wrote the Space Invaders movie, which remains at the script stage, as well as a movie version of F.E.A.R.
