Is Volition’s Secret Project-X Saints Row 3?

It has been a while since developer Volition has worked on a game, their last 3 products having been downloadable content for the destructive game Red Faction: Guerrilla. However Volition is now showcasing a new game called Secret Project X on its website and its looking like the signs are pointing towards a continuation of the Saints Row series.

Though Volition nor THQ have confirmed this, there are a few signs that are having everyone think Saints Row 3.  First off the 3rd game in the series has already been confirmed for a 2011 fiscal year release by THQ.  On top of that Saint Row 2’s Associate Producer Dan Sutton has gone on record back in October of 2008 saying that

“We’ve already started work on Saints Row 3, and we have a new direction we want to go in with that which we of course can’t talk about.”

While none of this is a positive that the game in question will in fact be Saints Row 3, its looking more likely that it will be.  As always, stay connected to PlayStation LifeStyle for all your PS3 news.
