Cancelled Saints Row PSP game unearthed

Canned Saints Row: Undercover to be live-streamed next week.

A cancelled Saints Row PSP game has been revealed.

Dubbed Saints Row: Undercover, the canned project was shuttered in 2009 when developer Volition and then-publisher THQ decided it wasn't up to scratch with the series' standards.

Amusingly, most folks at Volition these days didn't even know it existed. As explained in the video below, Volition associate video editor Josh Stinson simply happened upon the game laying in a wayward PSP dev kit tucked away in a storage room.

On a different path to GTA, says THQ.

Saints Row 2 gets release date

It's out this summer worldwide.

THQ has announced that Saints Row 2 is coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 on August 26th.

In the US, anyway - it's not yet clear if the game will get a simultaneous release in Europe. (Update: A THQ spokesperson has now told us it's a "global" date. That reminds us of another game, you know. Any ideas, readers?)

The news came at THQ's Gamers Day event in San Francisco, currently being attended by our very own Tom. He's also reporting that there's no sign of Dawn of War 2 at the event, despite the game having been announced yesterday.

Frontlines set for January 08, Saints Row 2 confirmed

THQ has revealed that it's targeting January 2008 for the release of Frontlines: Fuel of War, while Saints Row for PS3 has been scrapped in order to push resources into production on a sequel for Xbox 360 and PS3.

Speaking in light of strong financials that saw the company's sales top USD 1 billion, CEO Brian Farrell said: "The most important thing for the Saints Row franchise is to have a simultaneous shipment into a larger installed base next year." The sequel, previously hinted at but until now unconfirmed, is expected to be detailed in the near future.

Frontlines, meanwhile, was unveiled at last year's E3, and we've seen it a couple of times since. It's a next-generation openworld shooter and the first game from Kaos Studios - largely staffed by former staffers at Trauma Studios, the team responsible for the Battlefield Desert Combat mod and elements of Battlefield 2.
