THQ announced today that the long awaited sequel to Saints Row is in the works and will be coming to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 sometime next year.
Being developed by THQ's in house team, Volition, Inc., Saints Row 2 is going to feature even more customization options than the original. The game will take place in Stilwater, a few years after the original, bringing the game to a conclusion.
The game is going to expand on the customization over the first title. So far, it has been confirmed that gender, age, voice, crib and gang will all be things that the player can tweak to create a unique character. The title will also feature new cars, motorcycles, boats, helicopters, and planes to help players travel across the map.
Saints Row 2 is set to have both online co-op and mulitplayer. There is no word yet as to if an offline co-op will make the cut, and there is no word as to how soon we can expect the title. Be sure to check back for more details as they become available.
