Saints Row 3 and new Red Faction incoming

THQ banks on sequels - but you'll have to wait until next year for SR3

During a THQ investor call on the back of its Q3 financials (see Edge for more on that) THQ's bossman Brian Farrell said that sequels were incoming for Saint's Row, Red Faction, Darksiders and even de Blob.

All of them are due this financial year, so before next spring (we're thinking Christmas) - with the exception of Saint's Row, which is coming in 'fiscal 2012' (we're thinking NEXT Christmas).

It was recently revealed that Volition had begun work on a new game, which is known right now as Secret Project X.

Volition's most recent game is Red Faction: Guerilla but the developers also made the Saints Row games (and Summoner before that).

Other news from the THQ financials wasn't so good with Juice Games and Rainbow Studios being rebranded to focus on the creation of games for digital distribution. THQ renamed them THQ Digital Studios Warrington and THQ Digital Studios Phoenix.

It's expected that around 60 people will lose their jobs as a result of the changes.
