Saints Row IV may have already released overseas, but Australian gamers will have to wait until at least September 12 to get their hands on it.
Local distributor AIE confirmed the new release date via a press release this morning. “Australian fans of Saints Row IV will obviously be disappointed with this delay,” stated Robert Kingston, Director at All Interactive Entertainment. “We have used every means at our disposal to minimise the delay, but unfortunately it just was not possible to keep the same street date as the rest of the world.”
To make amends for the delay, those who pre-order Saints Row IV in Australian stores and collect their games within 48 hours of launch will receive a free Presidential Pack DLC code.
So to confirm, Saints Row IV is available on PC and Xbox 360 on September 12, with the PS3 version coming out on September 19.
