Could we see the next iteration of the insane open worlder?
Deep Silver’s Aubrey Norris is promising something big for PAX East 2013, taking place in Boston on March 22nd to 24th. She recently tweeted that:
Dear media:You’re going to want to be at PAX East this year.If not, you’re going to be missing out on something HUGE. Just FYI!

It’s interesting because of the word “HUGE” in all caps (subtle). But so is the invitation for the media, indicating something noteworthy will be revealed.
Interestingly, design director from the very first Saint’s Row Chris Stockman recently tweeted that Saint’s Row is currently in development.
@dmc_ryan hey just to let you know word around the campfire is SR4 is shipping on current gen consoles in late August.

Deep Silver/Koch Media were the lucky bidders who picked up the rights for THQ’s Saint’s Row series. However, if it really is true that Saint’s Row 4 is slated to arrive in August, then aside from GDC, PAX East would be the best place to reveal it.
Oddly, the August release puts it squarely one month prior to the release of Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto V. Does it make sense, considering the mammoth hype?
Regardless as with most rumours, take this with a grain of salt.
