THQ has confirmed that its planned Enter the Dominatrix expansion for Saints Row: The Third has been scrapped and will instead be incorporated into the next Saints Row game.
Newly-appointed THQ boss Jason Rubin explained that the DLC has far more potential to flourish as part of a full-fledged sequel, which will arrive some time in calendar 2013.
“When I looked at the Enter The Dominatrix expansion in production at Volition, I was blown away by the ideas and desire to expand the fiction of the franchise," he said.
"I asked the team what it could achieve given more time, more resources, and a broader scope for the project. We all agreed we wanted to play that game. When it comes to Saints Row, it's clear our fans want bigger, better, and even more over the top, and that's why Enter The Dominatrix will now be incorporated into a vastly expanded, full-fledged sequel, scheduled for calendar 2013."
"We believe the potential for this sequel is far greater as a full-priced, full-length, high quality, connected experience,” added Rubin.
Saints Row The Third was released in November 2011 for PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360. Enter the Dominatrix was originally scheduled to appear later this year for $29.99, and took place immediately after the events of the main game as Earth comes under threat from alien warlord Zinyak.

I couldn't be more excited that Jason Rubin GETS Saints Row. I don't know what it's going to take to save THQ, but sensible decisions on bigger, better games seems like a good start.

I hope by "more over the top" doesn't mean more silly and stupid than it already is.
