Responding to a fan query on Twitter last week, publisher Deep Silver confirmed Saints Row: The Third Remastered will launch May 22 on Steam.
The response was extremely brief, only saying, “Yes May 22.” Regardless of the brief reply, it’s a sigh of relief for fans looking to pick the game up through Valve’s online storefront.
Saints Row: The Third originally launched in 2011 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, then was ported to the Nintendo Switch in May 2019. A remastered version with updated visuals launched in May 2020 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
On PC, Saints Row: The Third Remastered was only available through the Epic Games Store. Now that the one-year exclusivity is almost up, Deep Silver will be able to sell the game on Steam and, possibly, other storefronts.
