The official website for Saint’s Row: The Third has posted an update on the PC version of their upcoming open-world romp, confirming that the game is… well… coming out exactly “when they said it would.” The post, dripping with sarcasm, reads as follows:
Today, THQ and Volition announced that the PC version of Saints Row: The Third is scheduled to release exactly when they said it would. Developed in-house at Volition in Champaign, IL and powered by Steam, Saints Row: The Third on PC is not scheduled to be delayed by any unforeseen development problems, shipping issues, inclement weather, or zombie apocalypse. As such, it remains on track for a November 15 release, exactly when we said it would.
This tongue-firmly-in-cheek announcement is a not-so-subtle jab at the recent slew of high-profile games delaying their PC iteration, including Batman: Arkham City and practically every single Ubisoft game.
As frustrating as these constant delays suffered by the world’s most prolific platform may be, it is nice to be able to share a chuckle with a studio who seems to understand our frustration… before we all immediately go right back to complaining.
