THQ Registers Domains for Saints Row 4 and “1666″
Finally, some news from THQ that isn’t depressing — the company has registered new website domains for the next entry in the Saints Row franchise, as well as for its mysterious 1666 project which came to light in March via a trademark application.
The Saints Row domains are EnterTheDominatrix.com and IAmSaintsRow.com. Originally intended to be a standalone expansion to Saints Row 3, Enter the Dominatrix will be incorporated into Saints Row 4.
Domains for 1666 include 1666Amsterdam.com and 1666TheGame.com. Superannuation provides some insight on what these domains could mean for the project:
The ostensible historical context of “1666″ led people to speculate that it could be related to the Great Fire of London — something that might mesh with THQ Montreal creative director Patrice Désilets’ background on the Assassin’s Creed series. However, the “1666amsterdam” domain does not seem like it could co-exist with something set in London, and although the Second Anglo-Dutch War was occurring at the time, nothing of note happened in Amsterdam during the year. The only other possibility that comes to mind is an Amsterdam Avenue, which does have a 1666 address — and the number in context of an address seems to evoke a horror subtext. Could “1666″ be a new name for Guillermo Del Toro’s InSane?
All speculation, of course, but food for thought. What do you think 1666 could be?
