Speculation surrounding some form of announcement at this year’s PAX East event has amounted in rumours about whether Saints Row 4 is set to be announced, although if this is true it will be taking on the likes of the highly anticipated GTA 5 and Watch Dogs this fall.

Saints Row 4 vs. GTA 5 and Watch Dogs this fall

With all the talk about next-generation gaming revolving around the upcoming consoles its worth contemplating how many fans will be excited about the expected titles on the current PS3, so we are intrigued to know if these three games will all be going head-to-head.

Going by comments made by Deep Silver, those not attending this month’s event will be missing out on a big announcement, and according to a tweet from Aubrey Norris, PAX East will have something huge revealed and speculation points in the direction of Saints Row 4.

While we investigate the titles related to both Deep Silver and Koch Media, it is hard to find one that has the popularity of the Saints Row series, and we are under the impression that Volition has been developing the game for quite some time.

In addition, hints were given last year by the president of THQ about a slated release of new Saints Row title in 2013, and Attack of the Fanboy highlight how this could put the game up against the likes GTA 5 and Watch Dogs, as these will all be open-world titles that is a popular feature among many gamers.

With GTA 5 and Watch Dogs scheduled for a similar release bracket it will be nice to see another Saints Row title enter the mix, proving healthy competition all around. We understand that this could be a totally unrelated title to the Saints Row franchise, but we feel this is a distinct possibility.

In a recent post we spoke about how titles like GTA 5 will help Watch Dogs freshness, bringing its own style to the open-world genre, and highlighted some features, which involve the player’s ability to destruct and hack into various electronic systems.

Watch Dogs could be a surprise package among the familiar franchises, and we hope it puts up a decent challenge with the likes of GTA 5 and the suspected Saints Row title. Prior to this we spoke about the release date of Grand Theft Auto 5 and mentioned how fans are continuing to show their disapproval about the delay.

Are you hoping the GTA 5 release date of September 17 is now set in stone? Alternatively, do you think another Saints Row title and Watch Dogs will be able to compete with the highly anticipated GTA 5?

    I think that any open world games released in the lead up to GTA V will fair well, if serving as nothing more than a snack to tide GTA gamers over until the release of V.

    I like the Saints Row franchise but 3 sucked so badly that I doubt that SR4 will sell really well. Watch Dogs is newer so it will sell, but many people will wait to see if it is any good or if the price drops before they buy it USED. GTA however is an empire that seems to crush all games in it’s path. It’s the fifth best selling video game franchise of all time, and every year it releases a full game it always is the years best selling game. I wouldn’t worry about GTA 5, it’s in a genre with almost no real competition. Many GTA fans like me will buy this game on the release date.

      @Heyxyz  @thunter992.seriously wtf? perhpas if you stopped being close minded you would anjoy it and not this borrring grap that gta iv was.

      • Heyxyz

        @Heyxyz  I’ll try to anjoy it? First off SR3 was terrible, anybody who played the past games would think so. It was short, it had less customization, weapons, Vehicles,  diversions, a smaller map, a worse story, and  a smaller soundtrack compared to SR2. BTW GTA 4 epic, don’t blame the game for your lack of patience, maturity, and grammar.

    I liked the saints row series but 3 was horrible. It was everything that saints row wasn’t. It was like a middle schoolers joke and dream in a game. No 40s, no blunts, no bling, nothing from th e earlier saints rows. Even the layers of clothes was gone. If deep silver can push saints row 4 in the right direction then it will be fine. Either or gta 5 is going to out sell both. I see watch dogs getting the least amount of sales just because its a new ip and new ips are just harder to sell. But I will certianly be buying gta 5 and sr4 as I said if it goes back to its roots. Sucks we have to wait till mid sptember to gta 5 though. Had my mind set on spring. Oh well. Sr4 will be serve as something for the wait. Anyone who hasn’t bought sleeping dogs go buy it! That game is awsome!

    Grand Theft Auto 5 will be epic and will be a sucessful game. GTA series is orginal and always fun. Rockstar is one of the few game companies i trust.
     
    Rockstar in my opioin has only made to sucky games. I trust in what Rockstar said ( That this will be the greatest and biggest GTA game ever) :D!
     
    i think saint row has the potenical to be good.
    Watchdogs hmmm were just going to have to see what happens..
    i have a feeling onces you pass the story mode and play it a lot it well get old. Unless if they have a massive huge map thats orginal and fun :D

    too be honest Saints Row 4 and Watch Dogs is not GTA 5′s only competition there is also another open world game coming out this year and that game will not be robbed at the 2013 video game awards like its predecessor ASSASSIN’S CREED 4:Black Flag WILL BE THE GAME OF THE YEAR AND THATS THE BOTTOM LINE by the way PS3 rules shitbox 360 sucks

    • aceoftunes

    • dakan45

  • MatthewRyanSeaux

    Man GTA 5 will suck now wat be awesome is if they took the graphics of GTA 5 and remade GTA San Andreas with those graphics then that would be the best GTA EVER!!! By the Saints Row 4 will suck and as for Watch Dogs im getting it but the best open world game thats gonna be released in 2013 is ASSASSIN’S CREED 4: Black Flag
